It’s always interesting to see many people around the world getting fascinated to the world of Samurai sword. To think that this is an old school of living, and it was only concentrated in Japan. Perhaps its gaining popularity is brought upon by the proliferation of anime in the media across the world. One of the notable fascinations is the fact that Samurai collectors are gaining ground too.
One of the interesting collector’s items is the JL590 Anime Sword, which is simply suitable for Anime fanatics out there. It features interesting details like having two-tone blades. Such feature creates a dramatic effect when it is hit directly with light. Imagine holding it out under the sun, the sword will radiate like some magical power is really emanating from it. This is bound to draw in many appreciative looks from peers and sword collectors.
The use of faux black ray skin is added as a come on for collectors because it contrasted with the green wrap perfectly. The combination of black and green as accent colors and with the steel blade is simply stunning and surreal.
Another remarkable look of this decorative sword is the unusual shape of the tsuba. It deviates from the normal rounded shape; instead it’s rectangular in shape with small circles at its end points. While at the end of its metal pommel is another metal chain ending in a horseshoe design. All these add up to make this Anime sword so cool to be possessed.
The black lacquered wooden scabbard makes a startling contrast to the uniqueness of the sword. It’s like one is always treated for a surprise whenever the sword is pulled out from its stunning scabbard. The blade measures up to 27″ and its handle is 11″, making up a total of 39″ in length. This sword is very lightweight, since its only 1.6 pounds or basically less than a kilo.
In a gist, the sword is just the sword to die for, no pun intended here. However, really looking at it makes you want to go back in time, during the glory of the Samurai sword. Nevertheless, since you can’t, one can just be content by owning this sword, and try to recall the old life by daydreaming during the time it was actually used in a real fight. Then, save some of your show off jitters for Cosplay, where you can invite glances of envy from your peers.
