Musashi Umigame Katana
From the Musashi Gold Masaru Series comes this intricately hand crafted Umigame Katana. Made using the Kobuse-kitae hand forged technique combining 1060 and 1045 high carbon steel, the result is a beautiful and resilient blade with a unique hamon pattern.
With hard steel wrapped around soft steel, the Umigame Katana is both strong and flexible. The detailed Maru Gata style brass tsuba depicts the the “Umigame”, or sea turtle, swimming through the tsuba. It also features brass Fuchi and Kashira. A rare blue color theme really compliments the Umigame tsuba, like the blue ocean that the sea turtle is swimming in. The saya is covered with high gloss blue coating and the tsuka is wrapped in blue cotton over real ray skin.
Included with this katana is a maintenance kit to make sure your katana lasts a lifetime as well as a premium sword bag, deluxe gift box, Certificate of Authenticity. Each sword is individually numbered on the tang.

This is a fully functional sword. The katana is hand forge to full tang. The tang is surrounded by a real wood handle wrapped with real ray skin and cotton.
If you are using it for tameshigiri training, it will handle it with no issues. While it is designed to withstand contact with other blades, it really depends on the material of the other blades, if you made contact with a 1040 high carbon steel blade, the Umigame should have no problem. But if you made contact with a 1095 high carbon steel blade, it will most likely leave a mark. With that said, we never recommend blade on blade contact, as improper use of this katana can result in serious injuries or death.
