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.
The Izumi Project celebrates the inspirational principle 'Wa', linking the ancient and noble art of Japanese sword forging with our 500-year tradition of firearms manufacturing. This kanji, 'Wa', created 1300 years ago, expresses the essence of Zen aesthetics: perfection and harmony in all things. This harmony refers not only to form, but also to an inner feeling, an approach to art, work and life.
Born in 1946 in Tohno, a town in northern Japan, Izumi Koshiro is the most important samurai sword engraver alive today. For the Beretta SO6 EELL he wanted to develop an engraving theme based on the Dragon - revered in eastern culture as a divine mythical creature, a positive symbol of strength and good fortune.As it happens with Katana swords, the dragons engraved on the receiver ensure strength and protection for the shotgun owner and his entire family. On the right side, among the waves, is a sea dragon while on the left side, surrounded by clouds, is a celestial dragon. At the bottom, another sea dragon emerges from the water and flies towards the sky. The dragons are depicted chasing the Dragon Ball, represented as a small golden sphere - the mystical 'sacred pearl' of wisdom, or Yang energy in early Taoism.
