Erland Sword Folded Steel Blade (#1202)


This is a folded steel version of he Erland Sword.   The blade is forged in the traditional Japanese folded steel method, creating a beautiful and original pattern, created by multiple layers and the folding and pounding of steel over and over again. These patterns and construction methods are the same as those of the traditional Japanese Katanas and seek to mend the gap between European and Japanese cultures. The beauty and artistic detail of folded steel is beautifully displayed in this piece.
