The sakura, or cherry blossom, explodes brilliantly and gorgeously in the Spring but soon falls. History teaches us there was no greater glory for a samurai warrior than to fall in battle in a field of scattered cherry blossoms. This Spring Sakura Katana represents this beautiful Japanese metaphor of the transience of life.

The blackened fuchi, kashira, and ornate stainless cherry blossom tsuba accent the forged and through-hardened 27" blade. The 5160 forged high-carbon steel blade features a 1-1/2" kissaki (point) and marquenched to an edge hardness of 57HRc with blade geometry conducive to rigorous cutting without chipping or deformation on soft and semi-hard targets.

Contrasted by the crimson tsuka-ito (handle wrap), the white same (ray skin) on the wood core handle, the notched seppa (spacers), silver habaki (blade collar), and the cherry blossom menuki (handle ornaments) represent the only vivid aspects of this sobering piece. The black lacquered saya (scabbard) features a buffalo horn-rimmed koiguchi (scabbard mouth) and a wooden kurikata (knob) with a black sageo (cord).
