Musashi Dragonfly Katana
From the Musashi Silver Shirakawa Series comes this intricately hand crafted Gold Dragonfly Katana. Made using the Maru-kitae hand forged technique from 1060 high carbon steel, and furnished with a rare Suguha hamon, the Gold Dragonfly katana is truly a unique katana.
The blade is forged with the rare Suguha hamon pattern. The Suguha hamon is lesser known and not often seen on katanas. The skills involved to create Suguha hamon are immense. 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.
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.
Included with this katana is a sword bag and Certificate of Authenticity. Each sword is individually numbered on the tang.
