Musashi Book Of Five Rings "Go Rin no Sho" Katana
From the Musashi Silver series comes this tribute to one of history’s most famous swordsman, Miyamoto Musashi. He is considered to be a “Kensei”, a sword-saint of Japan due to his undefeated record of 61 duels. The limited edition katana is aptly named after his book “Go Rin no Sho”—The Book of Five Rings—an insightful reading on the subtle arts of confrontation, Kenjutsu, and the martial arts in general. According to Musashi, the rings represent the five elements and the process of mastery over conflict that underlies each element. Each element is represented in kanji on the tsuba, Earth, Water, Fire, Wind, and Void.
The “Go Rin no Sho” katana is hand forged using 1060 high carbon steel with a real hamon. This razor sharp blade has gone through clay tempered process and is polished to an almost mirror like finish. The black battle wrap style handle is real ray skin in black cotton cord with a variation of the Kiku Gata style tsuba. The black wooden saya with buffalo horn blends in with its tsuba.
Included with this katana is a sword bag in a deluxe storage box. Each sword is individually numbered on the tang and comes with Certificate of Authenticity.
