Summer Lotus Katana
The Summer Lotus Katana is made of 5160 forged carbon steel blade features a 1 ½" kissaki (point) and blade geometry conducive to rigorous cutting without chipping on soft and semi-hard targets.
Continuing our themed katana series, our Summer Lotus Katana articulates every aspect of this fruitful season. The tsuba expresses a water garden, lotus flower and tree motif reflected in the snail and frog menuki (handle ornaments), symbols of fertility and good fortune. The blackened tsuba, fuchi, tsuka-ito (handle wrap) and fuchi-kashira contrast the real white same (ray skin) handle, the notched seppa (spacers), silver habaki (blade collar) and the green textured lacquered saya (scabbard).

Spring The Seasonal Katana Series represents an entry level katana with traditional handle construction and cotton tsuka-ito (wrap) and real same (ray skin). Designed for regular cutting the 5160 high-carbon steel blade is through-hardened for toughness.
