CS88ABK: 88ABK Gold Lion Katana Sword
The Cold Steel Gold Lion Katana represents a Samurais every day carry sword for personal protection, and the defense of his Lord, his family and his home. Significantly lighter than some of the other Cold Steel other heavier-duty Katanas, it is not only faster in-hand, but easier and more comfortable to carry when tucked into an Obi and worn all day.
The Katana’s 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 Katana's 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.
I have to say that despite trepidations of ordering online, my transaction with Oso Grande was absolutely flawless. I emailed Oso Grande about a knife availability and promptly got a response within hours. I proceeded to call and place my order over the phone. A follow up "thank you" email and tracking email was sent to me straight away and the knife, a Spyderco Delica 4 Titanium/Damascus showed up perfectly. Overall, I would be happy to recommend and order from Oso Grande again.
