Cold Steel Imperial Series Double Edge Katana Sword
Cold Steel has used only traditional
materials for our Japanese sword fittings. The Tsuba (guard), Fuchi
(collar), and Kashira (pommel), are expertly made and finely crafted in
The Habaki (blade collar) is hand made out of nickel-silver brass and
each hilt is covered in Samé (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 on the handle) enhances the sword's aesthetic appearance and
makes for a sword that is as traditional looking as we can possibly make

polish by hand, with a distinctive mirror polish applied to the fuller
