There's something about holding the power of a dragon in your hands, and I mean that in as platonic away as possible. This 40-inch katana has a grip that is carved from composite material into the semblance of a roaring dragon.
The polished metal tsuba has a symbol-of-chaos feel to it, which is apt for a weapon that invokes the powers of a dragon. The aluminum scabbard is light but rugged, and lacquered in black.
The dragon, a symbol of strength and fortune, has always been an important part of Japanese and China culture. The emperors of China are said to be descendants of these great beasts, which, now that I think of it, makes them kind of like the Targaryens from Game of Thrones. I wonder if the prime minister's wife calls herself the Mother of Dragons (or, 龍の母 to those of you in the East). Um. I digress. Again.
