SWORD OF THE GOD OF FIRENobleWares Image of Marto 370.1 God of Fire Katana Silver (370.1 Silver) by MARTO of Spain
Izanagi and Izanami,(Japanese: “He Who Invites” and “She Who Invites”) are the central deities of the fantastic Creation Myths of Japan. One of their offspring was Kagu-tsuchi, the God of Fire. In the legend, Kagu-tsuchi's birth severely burned his mother Izanami causing her death sending her to the underworld. His father Izanagi, in his grief, beheaded Kagu-tsuchi with his sword and cut his body into eight pieces, which became eight volcanoes. The blood that dripped off Izanagi's sword created a number of deities, including the sea god Watatsumi and rain god Kuraokami. Kagu-tsuchi's birth, in Japanese mythology, comes at the end of the creation of the world and marks the beginning of death. With this Katana of the God of Fire, Marto began their production of swords of for the Bushido Collection (The way of the warrior). This magnificent God of Fire Katana is available in, BRONZE (model 370.2), SILVER (model 370.1 shown above), and GOLD (model 370); The God of Fire line also includes a Ninja-To style of Black and SILVER (model 373.1)

The Blade measures 27-1/2 inches for this 38 inch Katana which weighs in at approximately 3 lbs 2oz.
The blade is of maintenance free AISI 440 Toledo Stainless Steel that is mirror polished and has been given a very sharp edge. It features a simulated yet realistic looking hamon that has been applied the length of the blade through a unique process applied by Marto bladesmiths during the forging of each blade. The Habaki is antique silver plated to match and bears the Marto Logo deeply stamped on each side.
The Tsuka Handle is wrapped in a brown dragon skin and bear antique silver medallions on each side portraying a curled serpent dragon in each center and family seal emblems (Kamon) on left and right. The pommel is capped the head of the grimacing God of Fire wearing a Japanese Kabuto (helmet) with a dragon perched at its crest. The Tsuba (guard) of the handle are a pair of antique silver dragon wings. The flame-shapen wings that create the Tsuba are only half of a surprisingly unique design as when the sword is sheathed the unfurled wings unite with the dragon body that is perched upon the scabbards throat making a complete fiery winged serpent. The dragon's head and front legs extend over the swords handle when the blade is enclosed within the scabbard.
The Saya features an ultra gloss ruby grained black enamel finish and is adorn with a deep red and beautifully tied Sageo (cord). The cord is attached to finely decorated Kurikata (cord knob) and companion cord divider on the opposing side. Both sides of the Saya's center bears a silver medallion seal (Kamon) of the God of Fire complete with flames extending outwards left and right. The Saya is finished with an antique silver Kojiri (scabbard tip) also meticulously sculpted with the flaming fire motif.
