Description

This samurai sword's branding is currently in transition from MUSASHI to MUSHA.

During this period the factory is shipping us mixed stock, which means we may have stock marked Musashi, Musha, or both, at any given time.

The sword itself has not changed. It remains the same sword which has been produced for years, made by the same master swordsmiths and using the same materials. The only change is with the brand marked on retail box, seppa, habaki or hang tag (if any).

Please contact us with any questions about this sword or the branding process.

A very rare find, this ninja sword comes fully functional with a sharpened black blade. All traditional aspects of a ninja sword are represented with this piece. The straight black blade, square guard (solid copper), and a scabbard that doubles as a snorkel for underwater stalking. There is no blood groove on this sword, making each swing silent and stealth. Other features include a hardwood handle with all black wrap (nylon cloth), full tang blade (can be taken apart, 2 peg construction), and black lacquered scabbard.

  • Blade Length: 27in (edge)
  • Handle Length: 10.5in
  • Blade Steel: Carbon Steel, Handmade tempered edge comes sharp
  • Scabbard Material: Hardwood with lacquered finish

About Musashi:
Miyamoto Musashi was a famous Japanese swordsman and is believed to have been one of the most skilled swordsmen in history. Musashi, as he is often simply known, became legendary through his outstanding swordsmanship in numerous duels, even from a very young age. He is the founder of the Hyoho Niten Ichi-ryu, or Niten Ryu style of swordsmanship and wrote Go Rin No Sho, The Book of Five Rings, a book on strategy, tactics, and philosophy that is still studied today.

Musashi writes about his first duel:
"I have trained in the way of strategy since my youth, and at the age of thirteen I fought a duel for the first time. My opponent was called Arima Kihei, a sword adept of the Shinto ryu, and I defeated him. At the age of sixteen I defeated a powerful adept by the name of Akiyama, who came from the prefecture of Tajima. At the age of twenty-one I went up to Kyoto and fought duels with several adepts of the sword from famous schools, but I never lost." -Musashi Miyamoto, Go Rin No Sho

It is notable that Musashi died of what is believed to be thoracic cancer, and was not killed in combat. He died peacefully after finishing the Dokkodo ("The Way of Walking Alone", or "The Way of Self-Reliance"), 21 precepts on self-discipline to guide future generations.

After his death various legends began to appear. Most talk about his feats in kenjutsu and other martial arts, some describing how he was able to hurl men over 5 feet backwards, other about his speed and technique. Other legends tell of how Musashi killed giant lizards in Echizen, as well as Nues in various other prefectures. He gained the stature of Kensei, a "sword saint" for his mastery in swordsmanship. Some believed he could run at super-human speed, walk on air, water and even fly through the clouds.

Just got the sword today despite placing an advanced order but after looking it over, the sheathe itself has a couple of scratches and dents but the blade itself feels well made and appears very clean. Haven't had a chance to test its cutting ability but overall, its pretty nice and feels pretty durable. You can feel the weight and tang too which makes me pretty happy

haven't got a change to cut with it but the look of this bad boy in person makes me speechless i can't wait to get to know the sword

This sword is well-made as far as I can tell. It is very quiet when practicing cutting resulting from the lack of a blood groove. I don't know how long blood grooves have been created within Japanese blades; I have always thought about it as European in origin. At any rate, the smooth construction of the blade is more aerodynamically efficient (i.e. no drag resulting from the groove).
