Presented at the Safari Club International Show 2015. The ensemble, the result of a five year long venture with the greatest Japanese Sword Masters alive today, includes a Beretta SO6EELL shotgun engraved by grand master Izumi Koshiro and a museum-quality Tanto dagger realized by five highly specialized Japanese masters. To complete the set, a luxury shotgun cleaning kit by Italian master Maurizio Cairola is nestled within a marquetry wooden box by David Linley of London. Master Izumi Koshiro, one of today’s most important engraver of Japanese swords, enthusiastically accepted Beretta's proposal to challenge with something new. Master Izumi chose to embellish the best-quality Beretta SO6EELL sidelock shotgun with a dragon theme. The receiver features a water dragon on one sideplate and a celestial dragon on the other, while on the bottom the master portrayed another sea dragon transitioning from the water into the air to bridge the two elements. Dragons are depicted chasing a gold sphere - the mystical sacred pearl of wisdom, or Yang energy in early Taoism.
