From the Musha Premier collection comes this intricately hand forged “Black Pearl Dragon” Katana. The full tang 1045 high carbon steel with REAL hamon makes this a reliable katana that is sharp right out of the box. The detailed Maru Gata style tsuba has a beautiful antique fading gold color scheme with design of a dragon soaring through the night sky. The saya with detail dragon made with mother of pearl on both sides is surrounded by a rich and gorgeous burgundy color.
A unique feature is the integrated Bo-Hi on the blade. Bo-Hi is commonly known as blood grooves, but that is a common misconception. The purpose of the Bo-Hi is to help reduce the weight of the katana, it actually has nothing to do with channeling the blood. Making the Katana lighter enables the user to wield the katana better and puts less stress on the hands. Not to mention it benefits some advance cutting techniques that requires the katana to change direction rapidly.
All Musha swords can be fully disassembled and reassembled. Maru Gata style Tsuba, Fuchi, and Kashira all can be swapped out for a different set. Real wood with faux ray skin handle is wrapped with traditional cotton.
Designed to be a fully functional katana, the Pearl Dragon with its quality build will astonish you with its value.
