John Lee Tombo Katana
The dragonfly (Japanese tombo) was considered an honorable symbol of the samurai. It symbolized the courage of the warriors and the attitude of never giving up.
The worship of the Japanese for this insect, which is considered in Shintoism as the spirit of the rice plant and harbinger of a harvest-rich autumn, is also expressed in many poems.
This sword is a real highlight in many ways. Above all, the thematic ornamentation rate, the differentiated hardened blade and the sheath with kozuka (attachment knife) make this katana something very special.
It has a blade of 1095 Shobu-Zukuri-style carbon steel and flute (Bo-Hi). The Tsuka-Ito is made of burgundy silk, the scabbard is painted in high-gloss black.
