History will show that Dawson swords are second to none in quality, function and beauty! Holding this masterpiece in one's hands, you might begin to envision the Samurai who wielded it in fierce combat. He carried something much weightier than the sword itself; he carried the honor of the sword, which could not be sheathed until all his enemies lay dead on the field of battle.
The simple oval brushed steel Tsuba is handmade by Barry, expertly shaped and notched. Elegant and authentic, a masterpiece of function and style!
The polished Micarta handle is ultra tough and durable, made to take a lickin' and keep on tickin'. The scales are fastened to a full tang with Barry's handmade Mosaic Pins, then overlaid with his signature black interlocking Japanese wrap.
This classic Katana boasts an elegant 18" blade. Traditional American quality from an American craftsman! The blade is painstakingly shaped from 1/4" high carbon 5160 steel with Barry's own custom heat-treat and high contrast hard-line.
This incredible sword comes with its own custom fitted leather sheath, specially designed to be worn tucked into a traditional obi or a western style belt. The overall length is approximately 26 1/2".
