Cold Steel Warrior Series Katana.
CS88BK Japanese style Katana from Warrior Series Handcrafted in the ancient oriental tradition, Cold Steel's Warrior Series addresses the need for affordable battle-ready weapons. In our efforts to reduce the costliness of the blades, we have omitted the expensive mirror polishing that we used on the Imperial swords to create a new series of Japanese swords with a more practical finish. The Warrior Series swords are very handsome in their own right and share the same steel, heat treatment, and sharpness as their more expensive Imperial counterparts. Like the Imperial swords, they have Samé covered, cord wrapped handles and quality fittings. If you’re in the market for a strong, good looking, reasonably priced Japanese sword we know you'll be happy to own one of these. All come complete with a black lacquered scabbard and a blue/violet cover bag. Specifications: Weight: 40.6 oz.
