Mokume Gane

For the warrior at heart...

The traditional technique of Mokume Gane was invented by a 17th century metalsmith, to be used for the adornment of Samurai swords.

In Japan from the late 1600's to the mid 1800's the Samurai sword changed into a symbol of the Warrior Class.

The quality and amount of decoration on the sword handle was an indicator of the social status and wealth of the owner.
