A striking large katana kake 刀掛け (katana rack stand) with a base made out of naturally shaped wood and a deer horn sword holder.
The holder and base are fixed to each other.
Large stand for a Daisho set: Katana and Tanto.
A Daisho set refers to the act of carrying two swords: a large and small sword.
Samurai warriors in feudal Japan discovered that carrying a large sword and a small sword gave them a competitive advantage over their enemies on the battlefield.
The base is made out of a distinctive tree root, with prominent rustic tree knots and a beautiful warm patina.
The antler holder is from a sika deer (Cervus nippon), a species of deer native to much of East Asia and introduced to other parts of the world (from Wikipedia).
