Deluxe Mamorigatana Tanto

It is well known that since the old 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.

AMamorigatana its not only for a newborn but also for adults, even nowadays is possible to see this tradition in business, when a company acquires it as a 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 a straight path.

The blade is made in traditional Hira Zukuri, without Shinogi or Yokote, nearly flat on both sides, with a Yakizume Boshi(no turn back tip Hamon) representing until the last detail the straight spirits of the Mamorigatana.
