From the Musha Collection comes this intricately hand forged Shinryu Katana. Full tang 1045 high carbon steel makes this a resilient katana that is sharp right out of the box.
The tsuba depicts Shinryu the dragon of the skies. The dragon is known to control the wind, clouds, and the rain to keep balance for all life. It is praised for bringing balanced weather throughout Japan, but when angered it summoned thunderstorms.
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. Kaku 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 Shinryu Katana with its quality build will astonish you with its value.
