From the Musha Kotoku series comes this intricately hand forged Katana with the crest of “Toyotomi Hideyoshi”. Full tang 1045 high carbon steel makes this a resilient katana that is sharp right out of the box.
Toyotomi Hideyoshi was a daimyo, warrior, general, and samurai during the Sengoku period of 16th century Japan. He succeeded Oda Nobunaga and brought an end to the warring lords period. Hideyoshi is famous for a number of legacies, including the restriction that only samurais could carry a sword.
This tribute katana 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.
