27 inch "Fire Dragon" katana
I have been practicing Iaido for a few years now, and after using first a bokken, then an iaito, I finally felt ready to purchase my first katana. I wanted a red saya and dragon themed fittings, so I went with the following:
27" Blade with Bo-hi
Tsuba - P2
Fitting - C3
Ito A5 - Black Cotton
S5 - Crimson, Sparkling
This sword came from the latest batch of custom katanas to be delivered, and I just received it yesterday! Just in time for this contest! I am so pleased with this blade, and the fittings and colors are just beautiful. Unfortunately, the saya has a crack in it so I will have to have to get that resolved before actually using the sword.
I have my next iaido class this weekend and am looking forward to showing off my new "fire dragon".A NOTE FROM PAUL:
The saya was damaged in transit, but as always, we will fix it!
