The dragon-head katana is the iconic weapon of Highlander: The Series, and is the preferred weapon of Duncan MacLeod. This priceless Japanese sword was given to him by his mentor, the samurai, Hideo Koto, in 1778.
According to Hideo Koto, the dragon-head katana was forged in 1592 (the year of Duncan’s birth) by the great sword smith Masahiro, whom he called “the finest swordmaker in Japan.” It was already nearly 200 years old when MacLeod first met Hideo in 1778.
This replica dragon-head katana features a hand forged carbon steel blade with bo-hi groove. The cast metal tsuba features a dragon design with a gold finish. The composite grip is made to replicate carved ivory. Includes a black lacquered wood scabbard with metal accents.
