SO6 EELL Izumi
Two ancient and noble arts, Italian armory art and the art of Japanese sword forging, come together to achieve perfection and harmony in a single object.
Project Izumi celebrates the inspiring principle of "Wa", connecting the ancient and noble art of Japanese sword forging with our 500-year tradition of firearms production. This kanji, "Wa", created 1300 years ago, expresses the essence of Zen aesthetics: perfection and harmony in all things. This harmony does not only refer to form, but also to an inner feeling, an approach to art, work and life.
Born in 1946 in Tohno, a city located in northern Japan, Izumi Koshiro is the most important living sword engraver today. For the Beretta SO6 EELL he wanted to develop an engraving theme based on the Dragon - venerated in Eastern culture as a divine mythical creature, a positive symbol of strength and luck. As with Katana swords, the dragons engraved on the body provide strength and protection to the rifle owner and his entire family. On the right side of the body, between the waves, there is a sea dragon while on the left side, surrounded by clouds, a celestial dragon. Below, another sea dragon emerges from the water and flies towards the sky. The dragons are depicted as they chase the Dragon Sphere, represented as a small golden sphere - the mystical "sacred pearl" of wisdom, or Yang energy in the first Taoism.
