Cold Steel Gold Lion Series
The Katanas Menuki bears the symbol of the Japanese Shisa (Lion Dog) a guardian or protector - a fitting motif for this beautiful lightweight sword.
Measuring just under thirty inches, the Gold Lion Katanas 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.
The Gold Lion Wakizashi mirrors the materials, fit and finish of its larger brother in every way except size. Its equally light and fast, and with the same high-quality materials, but at a fraction of the size, making it an exquisite companion piece to the Gold Lion Katana, or a beautiful stand-alone blade in its own right.
