Kuro Kinko Tamahagane katana no sendan maki saya

€ 2,900.00

This very special sword is a true tribute to the Japanese sword. In steel, fittings, mounting quality and overall harmony. The theme consists of three main colors: shiro, kuro and kin-iro; white, black and gold. Simple and elegant!

The sword could have been used during the Tokugawa reign where such fittings were indeed quite common. The black & white samegawa (rayskin) combined with the black lacquered, rattan wrapped saya (kuro sendan saya) are elements which owari koshirae is famous for.

The steel has been made in a bloomery with iron sand and charcoal. The traditional folding has created a steel pattern that we know as hada. The hada in this blade resembles a fairly large wood pattern. For this reason we name this specific detail: o-mokume hada (big wood folding lines).
Another detail that adds to the three color theme is the unique two sided silk aya-ori sageo.
