The Japanese swords of the Emperor Series have proven, since their initial introduction almost five years ago, to be quite popular with many sword enthusiast. Still, Cold Steel is aware that there are some people who want a battle ready sword but hope to find one at a more affordable price. The Warrior Series addresses this problem directly. In Cold Steel's efforts to reduce the costliness of the blades, they have omitted the expensive mirror polishing that was used on the Emperor Swords to create a new series of Japanese swords with a more practical finish.
The Warrior Series swords are very handsome in their own right and share the same steel, heat treatment, and sharpness as their more expensive Emperor counterparts. Like the Emperor swords, they have Samé covered, cord wrapped handles and quality fittings. If you're in the market for a strong, good looking, reasonably priced Japanese sword we know you'll be happy to own one of these. All come complete with a black lacquered scabbard and a blue/violet cover bag.
