The Shinku Saya (Crimson Scabbard) Mahogany Katana is a classic !
Featuring a beautiful Mahogany blade & Black coloured ito /sageo wrap with multicoloured tachi style mounting .
Although traditionally mounted to a longer Japanese tachi blade (primarily used for horseback), this allows the katana to be mounted blade down on the obi/sarashi/waistline like its older big brother and also makes for a stunning display.
Not to mention this Wooden artisan katana has an incredible looking alloy Tsuba & fittings.
Our High quality Wooden Artisan Katana range are crafted in such a way as to help replicate the look & feel of the classic Japanese Samurai Katana.
