The Izumi Project
“This kanji, “Wa”, created 1300 years ago, expresses the essence of
the Zen aesthetic – the perfection and harmony in all things. It goes
far beyond aesthetics.
This harmony refers not only to form, but
also to an internal feeling, to an approach to art, to work and to life.
The Izumi Project celebrates the “Wa” inspiring principle,
linking together the antique, noble art of the forging of Japanese
Swords with our 500 years of heritage in firearms manufacturing.
This one-of-a-kind set, hand made over five years by artisans on two
continents, is an homage to beauty, to craftsmanship, to passion, and to
the pursuit of perfection, which drives our Premium Guns philosophy.”
