Mizutori (Crane) Katana
The Crane is a symbol of luck and longevity, loyalty and strength, and is a much-loved symbol in Japan. While developing a new Katana to add to the long-standing and world-renowned line-up of Japanese blades, Cold Steel felt it only fitting to add the Crane as a motif.
The Mizutori (Crane) Katana is a high-end, high-performance blade that was inspired by older, practical battlefield Katanas. The Mizutori’s blade is made from high quality Damascus steel and differentially hardened with a clay-tempered Hamon. The handsome blade features a hand-sharpened Hamaguri grind with highly polished spine and blade flats.
The Tsuba and Menuki both feature an iconic crane motif, and the high-quality rayskin handle is tightly wrapped in brown silk cord, adding a level of detail and beauty that must be seen to be believed.
Housed inside a lustrous black lacquered Saya, the Mizutori Katana is a stunning and attractive sword that is sure to become the pride of your collection!
