There is no cooler way of toting an umbrella just like a samurai carry his katana. According to many reviewers on Amazon, this novelty umbrella is often mistaken for the real a samurai sword (for better or for worse) and is a certified attention magnet. This is also a great gift for somebody who are into Japanese culture, especially those who are a fan of Samurai mythos.
This is a full-length umbrella and has less folding action meaning it is more reliable during windy rains. The katana inspired handle adds to the illusion of a real sword and doubles as a comfortable grip as well. So the next time you are out and about and it looks like sudden downpour is imminent, just strap it on your back. Then unsheath it quickly and brave the rain with an awesome Samurai swagger!
