Steven Seagal is a Martial Artist who needs no introduction. He found international acclaim for his high-octane Action Movies, but his first and foremost love is the world of Martial Arts. With an encyclopedic knowledge of the Japanese warrior arts, a wealth of experience with the Katana, a 7th Dan Black Belt in the art of Aikido and a lifetime of training, he is still a much-in-demand instructor and consultant. Whether working specialist techniques with Mixed Martial Artists or traveling the world teaching seminars, there is no doubt that Steven is still a force to be reckoned with! This Japanese sword is inspired by an antique original from the collection of Mr. Steven Seagal. The extra wide, deeply curved Tachi-style, distal tapered and convex ground blade is made from Damascus steel and differentially hardened with a clay tempered Hamon and a distinctive peaked Iori Mune spine. The Tsuba, Fuchi and Minuki all feature a Vajra – symbolizing both the strength of a diamond and the force of a thunderbolt, while also representing enlightenment. The handle is bound in pure white samé (ray-skin) and wrapped with black silk, while the simple black lacquered Saya securely protects the exquisite blade inside! This astounding and unusual sword represents the highest levels of production blade manufacture, rivaling many custom swords in quality, materials and performance. PART # 88PK WEIGHT 48.4 oz.

Cold Steel, Incorporated was founded in 1980, a company dedicated to making the strongest, sharpest knives in the world. Superblades has been a retailer of Cold steel’s for over 15 years now and we are convinced they are among the best knives and swords in the world. Over the last three decades, Cold Steel has been at the forefront of the many innovations that have helped to define the knife industry as a whole. Progressive accomplishment, including the introduction of the checked Kraton® handles, and the tanto point blade styles have gone from curiously interesting features to industry-wide hallmarks of quality and sophistication. New ground was also broken with the introduction of unique new blade steels like San Mai III® and Tri-Ad™ Lock & locking mechanism for folding knives. Tri-Ad™ Lock for example, has never been equaled by any of Cold Steel's competitors and nothing they have produced yet has been proven to outperform it. We have tested the Tri-Ad lock here as well and found it to be second to none in strength and durability. Of course, Cold Steel will always look to the future, constantly striving to make the world's strongest, sharpest knives. That goal as elusive and difficult to achieve as it is, has been the same for the past thirty years. We here at Superblades will always continue to support and represent Cold Steel as a premium brand. Shop all Cold Steel Knives and Cold Steel Swords
