Description

New XL Light Blade Geometry! Includes Maintanence Kit

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

Mounted in black, the Musashi XL Light Katana is faithful to the original down to the famous double-ring iron tsubas. The tsuka-ito is in leather over ray skin. The blades are hand-forged in high-carbon steel, with new geometry to enhance cutting ability. It is edge-tempered using the traditional clay tempering method, resulting in a distinct hamon.

Edge hardness is HRC60, back hardness HRC40. The grip is double-pegged to the tang for safety. This cutting katana includes a traditional maintenance kit.

Competitive Cutting / Lighter Weight

This weight reduction makes for a quicker sword, well adapted for multiple cuts in lighter targets.

This is a premium Paul Chen Sword!
