For your consideration is this custom by Lee Katana short sword. Unused with custom antelope covered leather belt sheath
I obtained this incredible Bali carving. They used a large elk horn then carved an elephant in the end. I made a sword handle out of it. The handle is huge.
I also obtained this very nice, very sharp damascus katana blade made in Germany.
I had the brass colored tsuba (guard) which fit the sword perfectly without much fitting.
I put all the pieced together and it came out a great looking and feeling katana sword.
I had a custom belt sheath made for the sword. The maker attached antelope hide to the front of the sheath.
20 1/4″OAL, 12 7/8″ Blade to Guard, 7 1/4″ Handle, The elk portion of the handle measures 4 1/4″ circumference. (I told you it was huge)
