Hang forged by master smiths this Japanese Odachi sword is built as a functional, full tang dragon among swords. It is a massive 57 inches long, and has a tang that reaches 14.5 inches into the Tsuka (handle). Yes, it is true 1060 High Carbon Steel and is about 8.1mm thick, thick enough to use for cutting and makes a great workout. An angle is honed to the blade and sharpened, but easily it will sharpen out to a razors edge, so sharp you may as well shave with it if you dare. This type of hardness can only be achieved with high carbon steel that is hand forged and hardened though a quenching process.

Double blood grooves are featured on the blade and are necessary for a sword of this magnitude. The metal Tsuba (guard) has a very unique design similar to a tribal flame. This Odachi is like the dragon of all swords. Therefore, it has a dragon engraving on the handle itself. Note that the handle is wooden and has pegs holding in the full 14.5 inch long tang. Then it is wrapped in faux ray skin and black nylon cord for maximized grip. Even the handle is massive, at almost 20 inches long.

Amazing. Worth the money - solid build, symmetrical adornments, feels heavy. Worth every penny. Excellent guard design. The Dragon Odachi is almost as tall as this purchaser. The scabbard is quality wood, simple and unmarred. The amply thick leather strap/buckle is also simple/straightforward. Elegant and grand. And massive.
