Since time out of mind, purple has been the royal color of kings and Shinwa’s Purple Majesty Samurai Sword is definitely worthy of a king! It features a rich, deep purple, hand-forged 1060 high carbon steel blade, which is complemented by the brass habaki. The handle is traditionally wrapped with genuine black rayskin and features a purple cord-wrap to match the blade. The intricate, dark metal alloy tsuba has a lotus design with gold highlights and the lotus design is carried through to the pommel. The 27 1/2” blade slides perfectly into a black lacquered, wooden scabbard adorned with metallic silver splashes and purple cord-wrap.
