Cold Steelís Golden Lion Katana is designed to be a lightweight katana for the everyday duties of the samurai. Its bo-hi groove reduces its overall weight significantly and also gives it a favorable balance whilst retaining considerable cutting power coupled with the ability for the swordsman to quickly recover for another strike. This is a katana for the practitioner who desires a blade both swift in the cut and quick on the draw, for velocity is a power in itself.

The blade is forged from folded steel and it was differentially-hardened when tempering to give the blade a shock-absorbing spine and a hardened cutting edge. The tsuba and hilt fittings are iron with intricate 24 karat gold leaf detailing and the wooden grip has panels of genuine rayskin coupled with brass menuki and a grip wrap of black ito cord.

The saya scabbard is carved to fit the blade from wood and is finished with a coating of glossy black lacquer and a black sageo cord. Included with the sword is an embroidered sword bag.

There is a matching Wakizashi available to complement this Katana - it is sold separately and is linked in a thumbnail on this page.
