Limited Edition Bamboo "Fast Cutter" Lightweight Katana // Design by Paul Southren
The Limited Edition Bamboo "Fast Cutter" is a Special Edition Musashi Sword design by Paul Southren of Sword Buyers Guide. It was design as a lightweight katana made for super fast cuts. Using the Maru-kitae hand forged technique with 1060 high carbon steel the result is a beautiful and resilient blade. The Fuchi and Kashira depict a bamboo theme. Glossy black wood saya sheaths the katana while not in use.
An additional feature is the integrated Bo-Hi on the blade. Bo-Hi are commonly known as blood grooves, but that is a misconception. The purpose of the Bo-Hi is to help reduce the weight of the katana, and actually has nothing to do with channeling blood. Making the Katana lighter enables the user to weld the katana more smoothly and puts less stress on the hands. Not to mention it benefits some advance cutting techniques that require the katana to change direction rapidly.
Along with the rare hamidashi tsuba, the bamboo fast cutter is very light. In trained hands, this lightweight katana can cut maneuver and change direction with speed you didn’t know was possible!
The Special Edition Bamboo Fast Cutter is razor sharp right out of the box and ready for tameshigiri. Each Special Edition Bamboo Fast Cutter is individually numbered on the tang and comes with matching certificate of authenticity. Every Katana also includes a cotton sword bag for storage.
