The Oni played a significant role in Japanese folklore. They were most often portrayed as bringers of disease, famine and natural disasters. Through the centuries they’ve come to take on a more protective and cantankerous role than in generations past, but they are still regarded as being incredibly powerful spiritual beings.
The Kami were also important to Japanese folklore. They were the deities of nature and wielded immense power. To this day, there are still thousands of shrines around Japan dedicated to local Kami.
Our Oni Kami swords are powerful and dark, like the Kami and Oni that are their namesake. They feature stark, dark fittings, clean lines and careful attention to detail. They are engineered to perform.
