Product Description

Forged from real making using the method of Muku-Kitae, this is one of our prized posession sword. This is not like the ordinary handmade Japanese Katanas, it is passed from hand to hand right down to the tieing of the sword bag. The blade of the sword has been constructed of high carbon steel in a Maru Lamination. The Hamon and curve of the blade have been authentically created using the ancient Japanese method. The curve of the blade has been created as a result of the different steel used in the Ha and the Shinogi. When the blade is quenched the sword is covered with a clay solution, except for the edge of the blade. The blade is then heated and quenched in water drawn from the spring of Longquan. Since the Ha cools much more quickly than the rest of the blade the molecules in the steel expand and force the softer steel to fold back. The HRC of the blade is 55. The blade has been built with a high Mune, a deep curve, and a Kiji Momo Tang. A Bo-Hi has been added to the blade to lessen the weight and give audible feedback when swung. The hamon is in a doran style with a clear Nioi line. The Kissake is a medium length with a well defined Yokote.The blade is full tang and comes razor sharp. The Fuchi is copper with the Tree Fan. The Tsuka is wooden with a real ray skin Same wrapped over with a black silk Ito. A two bamboo Mekugi secures the tang in the Tsuka. Two copper Menuki looking like a Rooster is decorated on each side of the Tsuka. The Kashira is also copper with a simple Tree Fan Design. The Habaki is a one piece brass construction with the Musashi logo imprinted into the brass. The Seppas are copper, one on each side of the Tsuba. The Tsuba is oxidized iron with a cut out design of tree Fan. The Saya is hard wood with a high gloss black lacquer finish. The Koi-guchi is black bull horn. A black silk sage-o has been wrapped around a bright copper Kurigata.
