Bamboo is highly symbolic in many East Asian cultures and in Japan, a bamboo forest will sometimes surround a Shinto shrine as part of a sacred barrier against evil. With a tall bamboo stalk intricately hand carved into the saya (scabbard) and finished in with vivid green paint along with matching bamboo artwork on the tsuba (guard), this battle ready katana will help keep evil away from you. Constructed from heat tempered 1045 high carbon steel, the full tang blade is secured through the hardwood handle by dual bamboo pegs. Genuine ray skin and a light tan wrapping decorate the handle, giving a secure and stylish grip. A black cotton sword bag is included for carry and storage.
