The Edo period was marked by the stability of Japan brought by the Tokugawa government. The Samurai's role from warriors to peace keepers further progressed in this period. Although there was still conflict during the 200 years of the period, it was relatively calm in comparison to the warring states of the previous period. As the Samurai became more cultured their swords became more decorative and sword making became more of an art form. Some of the most beautiful swords came from this era.
This is the Damascus Steel edition of the late Edo Period Reproduction Katana, the sword's name is Spring Dragon. The fittings of sword are the same as its predecessor, but the blade has been upgraded to a Damascus-Look Blade. With the intricate and elegant beauty of the tsuba, fuchi, and kashira and the addition of the watermarked blade this sword is by far the best reproduction we have ever seen from the late Edo period. The katana can be used functionally, but is definitely able to be a decorative as well. This katana is perfect for serious collectors or beginning collectors.
