From the Musha Collection comes this intricately hand forged “Cakraratna”(Wheel Jewel) Katana. Full tang 1045 high carbon steel makes this a resilient katana that is sharp right out of the box.
The tsuba depicts a Cakraratna which is a wheel-shaped treasure that is possessed by the universal ruler that rules over the entire world called the Chakravartin. It is known to be carried in front of the ruler to destroy his enemies and allow easy passage. It is a symbol that is greatly worshipped in Buddhism.
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 are able to be fully disassembled. Kiku Gata style Tsuba, Fuchi, and Kashira all can be swapped out for a different set. Real wood handle is wrapped with traditional cotton.
Designed to be a fully functional katana, the Cakraratna Katana with its quality build will astonish you with its value.
