Musashi Silver Shirakawa Series // Dragonfly Katana
From the Musashi Silver Shirakawa Series comes this intricately hand crafted gold Dragonfly Katana. Hand-forged from 1060 high carbon steel using the Maru-kitae technique, this razor-sharp blade is beautiful, resilient, and finished with a rare Suguha hamon— a lesser known pattern not often seen on katanas due to the immense amount of skill it requires. The detailed Maru Gata style brass tsuba depicts a dragonfly with wings span wide. In Samurai culture, the Dragonfly uses it as a symbol of power, agility and victory.
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.
