From the Musha collection comes this intricately hand forged “Elemental” Katana. Full tang 1045 high carbon steel makes this a resilient katana that is razor sharp right out of the box.
Brown and black color themed katana with Maru Gata style tsuba. The detail tsuba depicts crashing ocean waves. Beautiful patterns of wind and fire are on the actual blade. Combining the patterns on the blade with the wood of the handle, and the metal of the blade gives us the elemental theme.
This blade features 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. Maru Gata style Tsuba, Fuchi, and Kashira all can be swapped out for a different set. Real wood handle is wrapped with traditional cotton.
