The classic Japanese battle sword in all its incarnations has been celebrated for centuries, not only for its elegant lines and simple beauty, but also for the technique and skill that went into its construction.

Most swords offered today are interpretive copies of antiquities from feudal Japan. They were made for warrior’s of small stature who seldom rose above five and a half feet. As skillfully designed as these swords are, they may not be perfectly suited for the 21st century warrior. As a way of compensating for this size disparity, Cold Steel has created the Dragonfly Series.

This Tanto has a thick, wide and heavy 1055 carbon steel blade. The handle features a distinctive teal-green silk cord-wrap and black samé (ray skin) with black iron furniture that bears the dragonfly motif. The polished blade is curved  and terminates in a long "iris leaf" point for maximum cutting and slashing potential. It comes with two protective bags; a blue travel bag and an intricately decorative display bag that's made from the finest heavy silk metallic brocade.

Coordinating Dragonfly Katana and Dragonfly Wakizashi also available.
