Description Item Specs
The Crane has been an animal of great myth from most major cultures of the world. Their myth and legend appears in ancient Egypt, Siberia, Japan, China, Korea and Arabia. In China the Crane carries Taoist sages between Heaven and Earth.

In Greek legend the Crane was a bird of omen. In Japan the Crane was a symbol of long life. During Feudal Japan the Crane was protected by the ruling class. It is also said that one who folds 1,000 paper cranes will see their dreams of health granted. With this in mind it makes sense why the Samurai would decorate their swords with Cranes. Since the Samurai's life was so quickly lived, a little luck from a Crane could go a long way.
  • Blade: The blade has been handmade with high carbon steel, hammered out so that the carbon is evenly distributed throughout the blade for a consistent hardness. A Bo-Hi has been added to the top of the blade to decrease the weight of the blade and give audible feedback when swung. The blade also features a kissake, hamon, and comes with a thin edge already sharpened. This sword comes full tang.
  • Saya: The Saya has been constructed from hard wood with a black dull gloss finish. The Sage-o is black cord, wrapped over a bright copper Kurigata. The Koi-guchi is a steel fitting with waves and a setting sun.
  • Tsuba: The Habaki is a one piece brass construction. The Tsuba is a beautiful cut out steel design of a crane spreading its wings. Two Seppas secure the Tsuba to the blade of the sword.
  • Tsuka: The Fuchi is a plain black steel fitting. The Tsuka core is wooden with an imitation ray skin Same and black cord Ito. Two bamboo Mekugi secure the tang of the blade into the Tsuka. Two blackened Menuki decorate each side of the Tsuka. The Kashira is another plain black steel fitting.
