The Cold Steel Gold Lion 41 1/4" Katana Sword represents a Samuraiâs every day carry sword for personal protection, and the defense of his Lord, his family and his home. Significantly lighter than some 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 Katanaâs Menuki bears the symbol of the Japanese Shisa (Lion Dog), a guardian or protector. Measuring just under thirty inches, the Gold Lion Katanaâs 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.
