Details

Miyamoto Musashi, arguably the most famous sword master in Japanese history, fought more than 60 duels before retiring and writing his famous treatise on swordplay, the "Book of Five Rings". Development of the two-sword style of swordplay, with the Daito (long sword) and Wakizashi being used together, is credited to Musashi. Mounted in black, the Musashi Elite 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 Musashi XL Katana provides a cutting sword that is economical yet authentic. Designed for maximum cutting power in heavy targets, these Musashi XLs features genuine Same (Rayskin) on the Tsuka, with a tightly-woven leather Tsuka-Ito. The long tang is double-pegged for security. Named for one of the most renowned sword masters in Japanese history and featuring the famous "double ring" iron tsuba, the Musashi XL is faithful to the original down to the famous double-ring iron tsubas.
