Product Description

From the Musashi Silver Shirakawa Series comes this intricately hand crafted limited edition “Dasshutsu” or Ancient Life Katana. Using the Maru-kitae hand forged technique with 1060 high carbon steel, the result is a beautiful and resilient blade with Notare style hamon pattern.

The detailed Maru Gata style brass tsuba depicts a scene from the famous Chinese Novel “Saiyuki”, or Journey to the West. While the Kashira and Fuchi incorporates a Tatami theme. The wood handle is real ray skin wrapped in traditional black cotton cord.

A unique feature is the Unokubi-Zukuri shaped blade with 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. Each sword is individually numbered on the tang with matching Certificate of Authenticity.
