The Battles of Kawanakajima were fought in the Sengoku period of Japan between bitter rivals Takeda Shingen and Uesugi Kenshin. Though neither warrior emerged victorious over the other, the battles did yield many stories of bravery, chivalry and cunning that have passed into Japanese legend and folklore. The artisans of Dragon King have immortalized this great series of battles in this forged and folded steel katana.

This beast of a blade is 28” long with a deep hi to lessen the weight. The mixture of T10 and 9260 steel give the blade very pronounced hada which can be easily seen in the dark hamon. The 13 3/8” tsuka is wrapped in black silk over real same. The tsuba depicts Uesugi Kenshin and Takeda Shingen engaged in combat. The black textured saya is wrapped in black sageo. The Kawanakajima katana will be a prize for collectors or a practitioners workhorse for heavy cutting.
