Musashi Ryoshi Katana
From the Musashi Silver Shirakawa Series comes this intricately hand crafted Ryoshi Katana. Made using the Maru-kitae hand forged technique with 1060 high carbon steel, the result is a beautiful and resilient blade with 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.
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.
Included with this katana is a sword bag and Certificate of Authenticity. Each sword is individually numbered on the tang.
