He was born 400 years ago in the Highlands of Scotland. He is Immortal, and he is not alone. Now is the time of the Gathering when the stroke of a sword will release the power of the Quickening. He is Duncan MacLeod, The Highlander!
Stunning replica of Duncan MacLeod’s katana from the Highlander: The Series (seasons 2-5).
Duncan inherited this sword from the samurai Hideo Koto over two-hundred years ago in feudal Japan. Duncan had traveled to Japan to became a student of Hideo Koto, from whom Duncan learned the ancient traditions, skills, and noble values of the samurai. Hideo was forced to commit seppuku for helping a “barbarian” and asked Duncan to be his second in the ritual”¦a duty that required Duncan to take Hideo’s head to ease his suffering. In return for this service and Duncan’s vow to always protect members of the Koto family, Duncan came into possession of this ancient and deadly family heirloom. It is with this katana in his hand that Duncan is truly at his most dangerous.
For the first time this sword includes the unseen overcoat scabbard that Duncan used to carry this sword unseen in public. Made of genuine and imitation leather, this custom designed scabbard can be worn on the side or back, and features a fully adjustable strap harness.
