In ancient Japan the Komoran was revered as a fearsome bird of prey. Fast and agile, sleek and silent, the Komoran delivered its fatal blow by driving its strong sharp bill through its prey. The Samurai warriors viewed the Komoran as an omen of good luck and strength. Many etched the symbol of the Komoran into the blades of their swords, believing it would harden the blade like the bill of the Komoran, provide courage in battle and deliver certain death to their enemies.

The Komoran swords are made to the highest quality using the same process from thousands
of years ago. Ancient Samurai sword makers used carbon steel as there was no stainless steel
at that time. Carbon steel is more prone to rusting so it requires some maintenance. Even
as your sword arrives, it may have small rust spots on it, but these will disappear with
standard blade polish. When storing or displaying your Komoran sword, it is
important you routinely care for the blade to prevent rusting.
