Description

The blade of the sword has been handmade from through hardened high carbon steel with a bohi. The blade comes full tang with a very sharp edge. The saya of the sword is wooden with a black dull gloss finish and black cotton sageo. The koiguchi has been constructed from blackened steel. The Paulownia Mon has been carved into the wood of the saya. The habaki is a one piece brass construction. The tsuba is black steel with a sukashi Paulownia blossom. The tsuka features imitation ray skin samegawa, black cotton ito, and two bamboo mekugi.

The Mon is the heraldic symbol of Japan and was very similar to the family crest of medieval Europe. The Mon was used to identify aristocratic families on the battle field, as decoration on garments, and to distinguish clan membership for troops.

This is the Paulownia Mon. This Mon was conferred by the Emperor of the Asikagas for bravery.
