Musashi Ryoshi Katana
From the Musashi Silver Shirakawa Series comes this intricately hand crafted Ryoshi Katana. Hand-forged from 1060 high carbon steel using the Maru-kitae technique, this razor-sharp blade is beautiful, resilient, and finished with a Gunome style hamon pattern. The detailed brass tsuba depicts the life of a Ryoshi. The wood handle is real ray skin wrapped in traditional black cotton cord. The gold accents on the tsuba really adds to the style of the sword.
A unique feature is the integrated Bo-Hi on the blade. Bo-Hi is commonly known as a "blood groove," but that is a misconception. The purpose of the Bo-Hi is to help reduce the weight of the blade so it is easier to wield and puts less stress on the hands. It also helps with some advance cutting techniques that require the katana to change direction rapidly.
Included with this katana is a sword bag and Certificate of Authenticity. Each sword is individually numbered on the tang.
