From the multiple high carbon steel alloys that comprise the blade to its distinctive blend of traditional form and wicked modern accents, the Blue Knight Katana is a bold mashup of electrifying contrasts. Though it pays homage to Japan’s ancient swordcraft tradition, Shinwa developed the distinctive Blue Knight with today’s serious swordsman in mind. Master smiths painstakingly hand forge every blade, and seasoned sword artisans carefully handcraft each tsuka and saya. From vigorously hammering the molten blade steel to gingerly wrapping faux ray skin and cord around the tsuka, every step in the Blue Knight's construction receives the utmost care and precise attention to detail.
