Japanese company Studio Shikumi is offering jewelry made from actual, factual samurai swords as part of their “Origami project.” The idea is to repurpose blades that would otherwise have been disposed of for minor imperfections.
However, if you’re expecting jewelry made from recycled weaponry to be cheap then maybe this stuff isn’t for you. A single piece can run as much as $900 or more, depending on which section of the blade has been used. Still, if you’ve got that kind of money to burn and want to dangle a conversation-starter around your neck, maybe this is the thing for you.
Check out more pics below.
Each piece comes with either a 40 or 45 centimeter long chain, and is presented in this snazzy wooden box. Best hurry if you want one, though, these are only available until stocks run out.
