Description

If you looking for a katana with a little bit more katana you have found the right place!

The Japanese term 'Daito' in katana terminology basically means long, or long katana. And our Sunburst Daito Katana is just that. It has a 800mm, or 31 1/2" long blade.
 
Hand-made, polished beautifully made blade. Traditional Shinogi-Zukiri profile. Very sharp, can be dulled for those who need a sword for iato practice. The textured black scabbard is less prone to scratching than polished versions, keeping your sword looking great. Brass fittings, including the classic Sunburst style hand guard all have an antiqued finish. Complemented in brown ito braid and sageo sword knot. Hiieee Ya!
