Cold Steel uses only traditional materials for the fittings of their Japanese Imperial swords. The Tsuba (guard), Fuchi (collar) and Kashira (pommel) are expertly made and finely crafted in nickel-silver brass.

The Habaki (blade collar) of this O Tanto is hand made out of nickel-silver brass and the hilt is covered in Samé (ray skin) and tightly wrapped in the traditional style with black silk cord. A beautiful Menuki (a small ornamental sculpture inserted between the ray skin and the cord wrappings on the handle) enhances this traditional sword's appearance.

Features a fully sharpened 1055 carbon steel blade, heat treated to a spring temper. The blade surface is then given a careful polish by hand, with a distinctive mirror polish applied to the fuller (blood groove). Comes with black lacquered scabbard and a blue-violet cover bag.

Trail Master

Every Trail Master's® edge has been honed by hand, then given a high speed buff until it is truly razor sharp and capable of easily shaving the hair off one''s arm. This knife, made of SK-5 High Carbon Steel, is so sharp it will cut at the slightest touch. The Trail Master® balances approximately 3/4" in front of the guard for a slightly blade-heavy feel that is ideal for delivering heavy chopping and slashing strokes. The Trail Master''s® Kraton® handle is 5" long and deeply checkered for a non-slip, shock absorbing grip.
