Your Dai Katana was handed to you by your master, many years ago. It had been a bittersweet moment for you, because while it meant you had overcome all obstacles in your training, it also meant that it was time to set out on your own.
You find the handle comforting, your hand finding its usual well-worn grip. As a traveling samurai--a ronin--your sword is your only consistent companion.
You look beyond the campfire where a fresh fish now cooks, sizzling in the heat, looking to the flickering shadows along the treeline. You have the sense that tonight you and your sword may once again be tested as you hear the unmistakable snap of a twig, your grip on the sword tightening in anticipation.
Epic Armoury's Dai Katana is a latex-hybrid sword featuring a distinctive Asian appearance with a squared guard. The sword is 100 cm long from tip to pommel, with a 70 cm slender, single-edged blade. The long detailed handle accommodates two hands and a firm, comfortable grip while on the battlefield. The handle is 20 cm long, cast and painted to look like fabric bound in menuki-style.
