The dragonfly (Tombo) is one of the most honourful symbols for the Japanese samurai. They symbolize the courage of a warrior and the mentality of never giving up.
This katana stands out in many ways and thus is given a name of honour: Tombo. A directly striking feature of this katana is the outstanding tsuba, consisting of two hand-painted dragonflies.

The wooden scabbard is made in the Kuroro style and contains a Kozuka (additional knife).
