Japanese katana ("samurai sword") with scabbard, mid-1900s. 1360 grams, 40" long, 30" blade. The katana was the main battle weapon of the samurai. This one, the first we have offered, is a traditional sword with a black lacquered wood scabbard, sharpened stainless steel blade (slight blade imperfection near tip), golden cord artistically wrapped around handle with shark skin underneath, and gold-toned metal embellishments that lend dignity and beauty, a real showpiece for the collector.
