Item # SD35270
$979.00

The lotus seed grows in the muck before emerging as a blossoming stalk. As the bloom fades, the seeds fall into the mud, continuing the cycle of rebirth. The Lotus Seed Katana is inspired by this circular journey of enlightenment. Like the lotus blossom, the Lotus Seed Katana transitions through various shades of violet from the wrapped cotton ito to the gold and purple sageo on the smooth deep, dark lacquered saya. Copper seeds accent the blackened furniture throughout the handle. The immaculately detailed budding seed pod following the shedding of its petals centers the entire piece. Silver dragonfly menuki, seppa, and habiki splash highlights across the subtly waisted tsuka. The 27.5 inch forged T10 blade is differentially hardened (HRC 60 edge, HRC 40 spine) and features a midare or irregular hamon line, much like the path of life with its ups and downs. This light, long, and fast Lotus Seed Katana cuts quickly and makes a bold statement both physically and metaphorically without being audacious in design. The matching Lotus Seed Wakizashi (SD35310) is sold separately to complete your daisho.

T10 is the Chinese equivalent of 1095, but it has silicon added as an alloying element to improve the steels strength and wear resistance properties. T10 blades are able to be tempered to a high hardness and hold an edge well. Similar to 1095, rust resistance is low, and T10 blades must be carefully maintained.

Please keep in mind that this sword has been hand-forged, varying slightly in finish and overall measurements.
