Description

Includes Sword bag and Traditional Maintenance Kit!

Miyamoto Musashi, arguably the most famous sword master in Japanese history, fought more than 60 duels before retiring and writing his famous treatise on swordplay, the "Book of Five Rings". Musashi was well above average height and his Daito (long sword) was made to match his size. Development of the two-sword style of swordplay, with the Daito (long sword) and Wakizashi being used together, is credited to Musashi.

The Musashi XL Katana is mounted in black, with subtle copper inlays in the saya, and the tsuka-ito is in leather over ray skin. The blade is hand-forged in high-carbon steel and is edge-tempered using the traditional clay tempering method, resulting in a distinct hamon. Edge hardness is 60HRC, back hardness 40HRC. The grip is double-pegged to the tang for safety.

I was shopping for a high quality practice sword and could not be happier with this Musashi katana from Hanwei. Very very sharp and very good blade finish. The fittings are solid and the whole katana is tightly put together. After several weeks of practice it is still as sharp and tight as when new.

A traditional, beautiful hand made katana from Hanwei!! This is a conservative, traditional design and while not flashy I feel it's more accurate than some of the overly ornate katanas being sold. Hanwei continues to impress me with their products and this Musashi is some of their best work
