Dragon King is setting a new standard in forged and folded steel.  These artisans of Dalian pushed themselves again to bring this pinnacle of craftsmanship for the Japanese katana.  Using the best materials and painstaking scrutinizing every detail,  under the direction of founder,  Frenchie Jin,  the fires of the forge were ablaze with several new forged and folded katana for the new year.

The new Kinryu Katana is the first in a series of limited edition forged and folded katana featuring an intricate dragon motif horimono on the blade.  The 27 ¾” blade is folded using T10 and 9260 steels to produce a pronounced hada which is more visible in the hamon.  The blade is well balanced and appropriate for various cutting demands.  The tsuka is 11 ¼” long is wrapped in brown silk over real black dyed samegawa (ray skin).  The deep gold saya features a black-lacquered rattan wrap at the mouth.  The koiguchi,  kurikata and kojiri are real buffalo horn.  The hardest decision you have to make after you wrap your hands around will be whether you want to cut with it or just admire the skills and effort that it took to create it.
