Bamboo Tanto by Citadel

The straight growth is typical of the bamboo. And thus the bamboo Tanto by Citadel has a small blade deflection. Butt end (Kashira) and grip ferrule (fuchi) are made of iron, covered with a simple but elegant, high-gloss black lacquer. Also from iron is the tsuba, which is not cast – it is made by hand. The butt end and ferrule grip are finely engraved with bamboo motifs. Ornamental rate (Menuki) with silver plated bronze offer a nice contrast to the dark winding handle (Tsuka-Maki) and underline the graceful picture. This quality sword comes together with origin  certificate, a quality sword bag, and a padded Cordura bag for transport.
