Product Description

Cold Steel Inc. is a knife and tool company dedicated to military, law enforcement Special units, emergency services personnel, self defense professionals and martial artists alike.

DESCRIPTION:

88K Emperor Series Katana is styled to reflect some of the most distinctive hallmarks of Japanese sword design. We use only traditional materials for our Tsuba (guard), Fuchi (collar), and Kashira (pommel) - Each piece is expertly made and finely crafted in nickel-silver. The Habaki (blade collar) is also hand-made from nickel-silver and the hilt is covered in sam (ray skin) and tightly wrapped in the traditional style with black silk cord.

 

A beautiful Menuki (a small, ornamental sculpture inserted between the ray skin and the cord wrappings) further enhances the handles appearance. All of our Emperor swords feature fully sharpened 1060 carbon steel blades that are heat treated to a tough spring temper. The blade is then carefully hand-finished with a beautiful mirror polish applied to the fuller.
(Photo colors may not match the actual colors)

 

Special Note:

High quality sharpened the blade with the fuller groove. Genuine Rayskin handles with black cord wrap. Brass tsuba, pommel, and collar. Wood scabbard with the black lacquered finish and blue cloth storage sleeve. Boxed.

The Art of Chinese Style Sword Making

The forging of a Chinese sword is a subtle and careful process, an art that has developed over the centuries as much in response to stylistic and aesthetic considerations as to technical improvements.


3,000 years ago, the bronze swords were created during Western Chou dynasty around 1122-770 B.C., the iron swords with the bronze handle were created during Warring States Period around 475-221 B.C., the iron and steel sword has replaced the bronze during Han Dynasty around 206 B.C. - A.D. 220.


In A.D. 265, swords are replaced by sabers for military weapons. The single edged swords are easier to wield than the double-edged swords. Swords now assumed multiple roles such as power, rank, symbols of honor, and decoration.


Today, swords are still being made by modern artisans. They continue to hold a unique place in Chinese culture; some pursue the traditional methods, while others apply modern tools, techniques and materials to the craft. A great number of commercially available swords are being made in China and Cambodia with modern tools and materials employing traditional methods.


Another reason for the great popularity of the Chinese swords is that an authentic Chinese sword, handmade in China, can easily cost US$12,000 to $25,000 and up. Chinese made production level approximations are typical $1,000-$2,500 for something reasonably traditional.
