This modern made Japanese katana is a reproduction of the very famous Japanese
swordmaster Miyamoto Musashi.
This Japanese sword, the Miyamoto Musashi katana, is named after Miyamoto Musashi
, probably the most famous swordmaster in Japanese history we know of. He fought
more than 60 duels before retiring and writing his famous treatise on swordplay,
the "Book of five rings".
This beautiful replica does have the typical long tsuka and the dubble rings
tsuba. As a functional sword the Musashi works for most types of sword practice.
The Tsuka is designed with Musashi’s sword style in mind, and as such
it is longer than most katanas, but the sword is lightweight and extremely well
balanced. Some practicioners actually prefer this style of katana for practice.
This katana's blade is forged in high carbon steel and the traditional clay
tempering method was used to create a flexible yet strong blade with groove
and a very nice hamonline.
This katana does come with a cleaning kit and sword bag !
