Description

The Phoenix of Asia is ancient, dating back to the legendary Shang Dynasty of China. It is interesting to note that although Egypt and Greece had a Phoenix in their mythology, there does not appear to be any connection between the Phoenix of the west and the Phoenix of the east. It is believed that the Asian Phoenix was based on the Asian Ostrich. As the Phoenix became more legendary it came to represent loyalty, grace and high virtue.

According to Japanese mythology Ryujin was the god of the seas. Similar to Chinese mythology, the ruler of the seas took the form of a dragon. His palace was under the ocean and constructed from red and white coral. Jelly fish, sea turtles and fish were his servants. The rulers of Japan would trace their lineage to Ryujin. Because of this fact, it was recorded that the Empress Jingu was able to control the tides that won the victory over the Korean navy.

The sword includes a Certificate of Authenticity, Gift Box, and Sword Bag.
 
  • Blade: The blade of the steel has been hand crafted of high carbon steel. The carbon has been hand hammered throughout the blade to give the blade a consistent hardness. A Bo-Hi has been added to the top of the blade to better balance the blade and give audible feedback when the sword is swung. A Hamon runs the length of the blade ending at the blade's Kissake. The blade comes full tang and sharpened.
  • Saya: The Saya has been constructed from wood with a blue high gloss lacquer finish. A black cotton Sage-O has been tied around a bright copper Kurigata. The Koi-guchi has been hardened.
  • Tsuba: The Habaki is a one piece brass construction over a brass Seppa. The Tsuba features a scene of the ocean with silver plated waves. On the opposite side is a gold and silver plated phoenix set against a turbulent ocean. An additional Seppa rests behind the Tsuba to secure the tang of the sword in the Tsuka.
  • Tsuka: The Tsuka core is wooden with a Ray Skin Same wrapped over the Tsuka core. A black cotton Ito has been wrapped over the Same. Two bamboo Mekugi secure the tang in the Tsuka. Brass and silver Falcon Menuki are found on each side of the Tsuka. The Kashira is another copper and silver falcon.
