A project with a littlebit of honor. The shinken was custom made in Japan according to the specific measures of the owner. It is one of those special projects were you can taste the near perfect Japanese craft.
The client wanted to have a practical saya for this shinken. Considering that the two saya that came with it were of excellent quality, he prefered to have another saya strictly for practise.
The saya was shaped to the sword which gave it almost automatically a dynamic shape. This was complemented with the black and red lacquer. Within the black the dojo's kamon was placed.
