|From the Musha Daimyo series comes this intricately hand forged “Oda Nobunaga” Katana. Full tang 1045 high carbon steel makes this a resilient katana that is sharp right out of the box. Unique detail Maru Gata style tsuba depicts the legendary warrior and leader, Oda Nobunaga.
Oda Nobunaga was a powerful daimyo(Feudal Lord) of 16th century Japan. He was a brilliant tactician, politician and a capable general. Known for his might in combat, he received the nickname The Demon Daimyo. Using alliances and military conquests, Oda Nobunaga unified half of the provinces in Japan under the rule of the shogun.
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. The Tsuba, Fuchi, and Kashira all can be swapped out for a different sets. Real wood handle is wrapped with traditional cotton.
Designed to be a fully functional katana, the Oda Nobunaga with its quality build will astonish you with its value.
