About

This large Japanese sword is crafted from fine Asian silver and steel. The sword is notable on account of its large size, featuring a long blade of steel and a silver case that is intricately decorated with delicate erotic scenes rendered in miniature. The sword's hand guard is modelled in the shape of a rosette, and features display mounts in the form of Komainu (lion-dogs).
