Shadowy and mysterious, yet clearly capable, Shinwa’s “Black Knight” Katana embodies the fabled “dark-“ or “black knight” of lore – a rogue warrior loyal to no warlord or king, who fights only for himself and his own cryptic, deviant-yet-noble principles. Indeed, the Black Knight Katana slashes to the beat of its own drum. And despite its grim hues, the Black Knight is nothing if not vibrant and alluring; it’s teeming with distinctive appointments and captivating accents – a true masterwork of contemporary sword design.
