Fashioned from the popular movie "Kill Bill" and "Kill Bill Vol. 2" this fine reproduction katana is the most intricately designed swords for the best price you will find. This is the "Bride's" sword. The Carbon steel blade is etched to appear to have the deadly sharpness of a real samurai sword, although this blade is not sharpened for safety reasons. The Bride's blade features an additional engraving near the handle. The blade has a full, two-handed 11.5" handle beautifully wrapped as with most traditional katana handle wraps (Tsuka ito). As an added detail, the ends of each handle are topped with gold accent metal designs. This sword is beautiful! Traditional and authentic long wrap technique featured on scabbard. And two-tone intricate metal trimmings throughout the sword make this a gorgeous addition to any sword collection. A matte black painted wood display stand also accompany this sword set. Ancient Japanese lettering is painted in gold on the stand as well, adding to the authentic look of this sword.
