Details

Mounted in black, the Musashi Elite katana is faithful to the original down to the famous double-ring iron tsubas The tsuka-ito is in leather over ray skin. The blades are hand-forged in high-carbon steel, with new geometry to enhance cutting ability. It is edge-tempered using the traditional clay tempering method, resulting in a distinct hamon. Edge hardness is HRC60, back hardness HRC40. The grip is double-pegged to the tang for safety. The cutting style katanas (Elite, XL, XL Light) include a traditional maintenance kit.

 

The "PB" symbol indicates the blade is from the Performance series. The Elite katana's blade is a little wider and a little thicker then the traditional counterpart, allowing for easier cuts on normal targets. The XL blade is significantly wider, for use in cutting heavy targets, and finally the XL Light has the XL's profile, but with a bo-hi, reducing the weight to the point where double cuts are possible, but clean cuts on heavy targets can still be made.
