Ronin "Sakura" Blade
Ronin “Sakura” Blade with Trainer
The Rōnin “Sakura” Blade was designed from the needs of combat by Special Operation soldiers. Slim, fast and effective, the "Sakura" Blade is a thing of lethal beauty as it symbolizes the meaning of Bushidō.
“Sakura” means cherry blossom in Japanese and was considered to be especially beautiful and an important symbol for the Japanese warrior class because at the height of its beauty it would inevitably fall to the ground to die. The way of the Samurai is expressed through the study and understanding of Bushidō, literally translating "The Way of the Warrior, which stresses utmost loyalty to serve a higher cause other than oneself, seek perfection in every endeavor, and mastering one's trade. This way of conduct allowed the violent existence of the Samurai to be tempered by wisdom and serenity. This balance allowed them to live with honor onto death. The cherry blossom, as in life, is beautiful but short-lived as the blossoms that fell before their time reflected the warrior that fell before his.
This blade was designed to be rapidly employed and used as an extreme close quarters weapon. The ring allows the user to quickly spin from a pick/reverse grip to an extended blade position. The "Sakura" double edged tip allows the blade to effectively trap, cut, and penetrate through muscle and soft tissue areas without binding the blade. The ring dimension was designed to be used with or without tactical gloves allowing the blade to lock or spin freely as needed. The curved tapering handle provides a slim and comfortable profile which contours with the natural lines of the user's palm. The thumb ramp that runs down the spine of the blade provides improved traction while employing in either a blade or saber position. The eyelets on the "Sakura" blade's Kydex sheath was designed to be carried either in a LOW VIS or tactical configuration and was made to work with any Blade-Tech clip-on attachment (attachment available at www.blade-tech.com).
The "Sakura" Blade was designed by Tu Lam, a former member of US Army Special Forces, and produced by his Ex-Teammate and Co-Founder/ Co-Owner of Spartan Blades, LLC.
