Product Description

Ryumon Samurai Folded Dragon Practical Katana

The Ryumon Folded Dragon Katana has a Hand Forged and Folded AISI 1060 High Carbon Steel blade tempered in the traditional clay method, which produces a hard (and extremely sharp) Ha (Cutting edge), and a resilient spine.

Masters who have been making swords for over 2000 years forge and polish the sword to reveal it's beautiful Hamon (temper line) and Hada (grain pattern). Each Iron tsuba is traditionally detailed with a dragon motif.

The wood saya is deeply lacquered with a glossy black finish and is tied with an imported Japanese cotton sageo. The tsuka (handle) is wrapped with authentic Same (rayskin) and imported Japanese cotton.

First off, I would like to say the ratings do not serve Ryumon justice. You can read why on SwordBuyersGuide. Anyway, first time I unsheathed this sword, I felt a immediate rush that is hard to describe, immediately it felt superbly balanced. As a Kenjutsu practitioner I appreciate a nice feeling sword. After unwrapping the plastic meant to protect the blade for prolonged periods of storage, I noticed something that I would say is a near-fatal if not fatal flaw. On the right-side of the blade the Hamon rides right along the Ha of the sword and at one point clips the Ha. While on left-side it is a gorgeous Hamon with reasonable distance from the Ha. Very visable Yokote and there is a left-side Boshi but I cannot see one on the right-side, the blade is also very sharp. The Saya is a perfect fit, this is reasonably uncommon even on higher end swords ($500 USD+). Fittings are not iron but are copper and for me it had a lot of casting soot which still isn't fully cleaned yet. The Same is genuine ray-skin, the Ito is cotton, the Tsuka-maki is serviceable in a Moro Hineri-Maki style and the Sageo is synthetic silk. The Tsuka is tapered. Pros: -Amazing feeling sword -Differently hardened -Perfectly fitted Saya Cons: -Tsuka-maki is glued to the Tsuka -Hamon is too close to the Ha (Only an issue if it is standard across all their swords). -Soot on castings (extremely minor, even negligible). Overall and personally I feel there is little to complain about, to be honest I'm impressed with the sword, feeling-wise it is comparable to my Nihonto. I feel like I got a bad apple with regards to the Hamon the only true complaint I have is the glue on the Tsuka-Maki. Otherwise this a absolutely superb sword. I strongly recommend Ryumon. Kindest regards from Canada!

My need for a katana is not for play. I work in Alaska in an area where firearms are not allowed because of the possibility of damage to pipelines, but there are still bears around, and once in a while one gets stupid. Two months ago I broke my blade practicing and needed a very strong blade as replacement. James recommended this particular model, and I could not be happier. The fittings are tight and well made, and once I finished the sharpening, the blade cut four-inch bamboo without a whimper. I have since purchased a Horse Katana to go with this one, which is exactly the same blade. This should tell you how much I like these swords. Highly recommended for any use, and they will do ANYTHING reasonable that you demand of them. Thanks, James!!!

So I noticed there are many ratings but not many reviews on this site. Due to that fact and the fact that this should not go as a rating alone, I decided to do a review. I have no major complaints whatsoever, blade came in sharp, could be sharper, but then it probably wouldn't retain an edge as well, they are sharpened to a certain point for a reason. Also, it still requires caution, it is definitely sharp enough to cause a very serious injury. main thing I liked was the fittings, this is very important to me. the showcase swords always have the blade wobbling in the tsuba, and the tsuka is usually loose. If I seen this on any functional sword I would be very displeased. however, all of the fittings are tight on this piece, the ito is wrapped quite exceptionally, I would go with 4 and a half stars if it would let me because there is always room for improvement, but 5 stars represents my feelings on this blade better than 4. The blade itself is very nice, I would have like to see a better grain pattern, but beauty came in second to functionality in my mind. it has a great feel to it, for the price you are paying this is such an amazing piece. if you want any better you would have to save up a lot of money. however in the $150-250 price range you don't get much better. like I said if you want better save up and save up, maybe even take a trip to japan and see what you can find. but if you want a functional sword now and do not want to cough up $1200 go for this piece.
