"The classic Japanese battle sword in all its incarnations has been celebrated for centuries not only for its elegant lines and simple beauty but also for the technique and skill that went into its construction.
Cold Steel has created the Dragonfly Series - these swords feature thicker wider and heavier blades which mirror the Emperor Series in respect to heat treatment polish quality of furnishings and attention to detail but with a few other departures.
Most noticeable are the distinctive teal-green silk cord-wrap and black same (ray skin) used on the handles and the black iron furniture that bears the Dragonfly motif. Also the polished blades are more strongly curved that the Emperor blades and terminate in a long ""iris leaf"" point for maximum cutting and slashing potential.
Additionally these swords come with two protective bags. These is a blue cotton travel bag and an intricately decorative display bag that's made from the finest heavy silk metallic brocade.
