  • Ryu Kamon Engraving


    Dragon - 「竜」 in Japanese

    In ancient Japan, people often made offerings to dragons because they believed they were responsible for sending rain down to Earth. Dragons also symbolize strength and power and one would think that many warriors would have adopted a dragon as their emblem.

    Interestingly, however, the Ryu mon is a rather rare insignia with only about 40 known variations, most of which were actually used by temples.

    The Tenryu-ji and Nanzen-ji temples in Kyoto both use the same, but symmetrically opposed, Ama-ryu (rain dragon) design.

    Kamon 1

    Ire-chigai Ama-ryu (Upside-down rain dragons).
    The mon (jimon) of the Tenryu-ji temple in Kyoto.

    Kamon 2

    Zui-ryu (Good omen water dragons).
    The mon (jimon) of the Nanzen-ji temple in Kyoto.

    Kamon 3

    Nichiren-shu Ryu no Maru (dragon circle of the Nichiren sect).
    There are several versions of this design, either with a small number or with a great number of scales. Because of wood engraving limitations, we propose the simpler version only.

    Kamon 4

    Ryu no Tsume (dragon claws).

    How to Order - Service Description

    1. Select your Kamon size
      1.5 cm fits on all weapons and is fairly small for a Kamon. We recommend this size only for Kamon with few details. Fits all weapons, including 24 mm Jo.
      2 cm can be considered as standard. It fits on most weapons, except on the thinnest weapons such as the 24 mm Jo.
      2.5 cm is fairly big and will not fit on thin Koryu Bokken, Tanto, Bo, Hanbo, and Jo.
      If the selected size is too big for the ordered weapon, the Kamon will be adapted to the maximum engravable size.
    2. Select your Kamon design
    3. Select Kamon position
      If you wish to offset the position in regard to a name engraving ordered from the product page, please use the "additional instructions" field.
    4. Additional instructions
      If you order several weapons, please use the field "additional instructions" to specify which weapon should be engraved.

    All special requests must be discussed prior to placing your order. If you have a doubt, email us before placing your order.
    One Kamon = One engraving. For more than one engraving, add the Kamon as many time as desired with the correct options.
    This is not a product but an engraving service that can only be ordered as part of a simultaneous purchase with a product on which to engrave.
