The Crane is a symbol of luck and longevity, loyalty and strength, and is a much-loved symbol in Japan. As we developed a new Katana to add to our long standing and world-renowned line-up of Japanese blades, we felt it only fitting to add the Crane as a motif. The Mizutori Katana is a high-end, high-performance blade that was inspired by older, practical battlefield Katana.
Measuring a hair under thirty inches, the Mizutori’s blade is made from high quality carbon steel and differentially hardened with a clay tempered Hamon. The handsome blade features a hand sharpened Hamaguri grind with highly polished spine and blade flats. The Tsuba and Menuki both feature an iconic crane motif, and the high quality ray-skin handle is tightly wrapped in brown silk cord, adding a level of detail and beauty that must be seen to be believed.
Housed inside a lustrous black lacquered Saya, the Mizutori Katana a stunning and attractive sword that is sure to become the pride of your collection!
