From the Musha Collection comes this intricately hand forged "Sakura”(Cherry Blossom) Katana. The Full tang Golden 1045 high carbon steel makes this a resilient katana that is razor sharp right out of the box. The detailed dual tone tsuba depicts a Sakura with matching Kashira and Fuchi.
The cherry blossom represents the beauty and fragility of life. It is a reminder of how beautiful life can be, but also how tragically short it is. They are mainly known to symbolize the spring or a time of renewal.
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 handle is wrapped with traditional cotton.
Designed to be a fully functional katana, the Sakura with its quality build will astonish you with its value.
