Description

The Magatama katana is designed as a mid range cutting sword. The tough, full thickness high carbon 1095AISI steel provides a solid base. Non-clay tempered, making for a more economical sword. 

"Magatama" in Japanese mythology are sacred symbols. They represent many things - life force, protection, luck and were even used to create deities. The tsuba (handgaurd) on the Magatama Katana, features six of these in traditional whirl pool design.
