Cold Steel Steven Seagal Signature Katana

(Ref: CS-88PK)

This Japanese sword is inspired by an antique original from the collection of Mr. Steven Seagal.

The extra wide, deeply curved Tachi-style, distal tapered and convex ground blade is made from Damascus steel and differentially hardened with a clay tempered Hamon and a distinctive peaked Iori Mune spine.

The Tsuba, Fuchi and Minuki all feature a Vajra – symbolizing both the strength of a diamond and the force of a thunderbolt, while also representing enlightenment. The handle is bound in pure white samé (ray-skin) and wrapped with black silk, while the simple black lacquered Saya securely protects the exquisite blade inside! This astounding and unusual sword represents the highest levels of production blade manufacture, rivaling many custom swords in quality, materials and performance.

The wakizashi's unusual blade is almost an exact reproduction of an extremely rare antique original from the collection of Mr. Steven Seagal.

Its wide, curved and wickedly keen 15” Naginata-style blade is made from Damascus steel - Hamaguri ground and highly polished with a clay tempered Hamon and pronounced “false edge” – with a very distinctive weight forward balance giving it amazing cutting potential! The Tsuba, Fuchi and Kashira all feature a distinctive Vajra motif – symbolizing diamond like strength, the force of a thunderbolt, and spiritual enlightenment.

This Wakizashi also features a handle that’s tightly wrapped in black leather (rather than the more traditional samé and silk) adding to its truly unique appearance.

Cold Steel Mizutori Katana

(Ref: CS-88CKK)

The Crane is a symbol of luck and longevity, loyalty and strength, and is a much-loved symbol in Japan. As we developed a new Katana to add to our longstanding and world-renowned line-up of Japanese blades, we felt it only fitting to add the Crane as a motif. The Mizutori Katana is a high-end, high-performance blade that was inspired by older, practical battlefield Katana.

Measuring a hair under thirty inches, the Mizutori’s blade is made from high quality Damascus steel and differentially hardened with a clay tempered Hamon. The handsome blade features a hand sharpened Hamaguri grind with highly polished spine and blade flats. The Tsuba and Menuki both feature an iconic crane motif, and the high quality ray-skin handle is tightly wrapped in brown silk cord, adding a level of detail and beauty that must be seen to be believed.

Housed inside a lustrous black lacquered Saya, the Mizutori Katana a stunning and attractive sword that is sure to become the pride of your collection!

The Mizutori Wakizashi mirrors the materials, fit and finish of its larger brother in every way except size. It’s equally light and fast, and with the same high-quality materials, but at a fraction of the size, making it an exquisite companion piece to the Mizutori Katana, or a beautiful stand-alone blade.

Cold Steel Gold Lion Katana

(Ref: CS-88ABK)

The Cold Steel Gold Lion Katana represents a Samurai’s “every day carry sword” for personal protection, and the defense of his Lord, his family and his home. Significantly lighter than some of our other heavier-duty Katana, it is not only faster in-hand, but easier and more comfortable to carry when tucked into an Obi and worn all day.

The Katana’s Menuki bears the symbol of the Japanese Shisa (Lion Dog) a guardian or protector - a fitting motif for this beautiful lightweight sword.

Measuring just under thirty inches, the Gold Lion Katana’s blade is made from expertly hand honed and highly polished Damascus steel, with a Hamaguri grind, peaked Iori Mune spine and undulating clay-tempered Hamon.

The black iron Tsuba, Fuchi and Kashira all have gleaming 24 carat gold leaf accents and the handle features white ray-skin and a black silk cord wrap.

The Gold Lion Wakizashi mirrors the materials, fit and finish of its larger brother in every way except size. It’s equally light and fast, and with the same high-quality materials, but at a fraction of the size, making it an exquisite companion piece to the Gold Lion Katana, or a beautiful stand-alone blade in its own right.

Hanwei Ronin Katana

(Ref: SH2360)

The Story of the 47 Ronin is one of the most celebrated and influential tales of the Samurai from the Edo period. Lord Asano was a powerful Daimyo ordered by the Shogun to entertain guests of the Imperial Family. The highest ranking master of protocol, Kira, was given the task of teaching Asano, among others, proper matters of etiquette in this task. Lord Asano and Kira quickly grew to dislike each other and the teacher insulted his student at every opportunity. No longer able to contain himself, Asano drew his sword upon Kira, wounding him in the attack. This act led to Asanos ordered suicide (seppuku) and the confiscation of his property. On December 14, 1702, nearly one year after Asanos death, 47 of Asanos men (now Ronin), descended upon the mansion of Kira to exact their revenge. After a fierce battle, the Ronin demanded that Kira commit seppuku for his transgressions against their former master. When he refused he was beheaded. For their actions the Ronin were themselves sentenced to death by seppuku. They are buried together at the Sengakuji, offering a true testament to the loyalty inherent in the Samurai.

Our Ronin Koshirae Katana captures the spirit of Lord Asanos 47 Ronin. The blackened iron Tsuba depicts Asanos followers on their vengeful march. The blade is hand forged & folded Swedish powder steel with Hi in a traditional Shinogi Zukuri style.
