Deluxe Mamorigatana Maki-E Take
It is well known that since the olds times in Japan the Katana has been considered much more than just a weapon, but as a sacred being, as Kami (God) himself that had power over evil spirits and bad luck.
By these beliefs, in the old times and even nowadays sometimes, a talisman Katana called Mamorigatana is being given to a newborn in order to attract good luck and to ward off the evil spirits.
Mamorigatana it’s not only for a newborn, but also for adults. Even nowadays is possible to see this tradition on business, when a company acquires a Mamorigatana as talisman for success.
The particularity of this Tanto is Musori (straight blade) and Sugu Ha (straight Hamon), these straights represent the desire and hope of having a straight life, easy to live and walk as straight path.
The blade is in the traditional Hira Zukuri, without Shinogi or Yokote, nearly flat on the both sides, with a Yakizume Boshi (no turn back tip Hamon) representing until the last detail the straight spirits of the Mamorigatana.
