Battle Ready Reverse Blade - Rurouni Kenshin Samurai Sword Full Tang

Reverse blade? Yes. Full tang? Yes. Razor Sharp? Yes. This is the reverse blade sword everyone has been requesting and waiting for. The guard and sword design is an accurate replica to the Rurouni Kenshin anime series. The blade is thick carbon steel with a sharpened reverse edge. High quality guard, glossy black lacquered scabbard, real ray skin, and tight black nylon wrapped handle. This sword can be disassembled for care. The blade-to-handle assembly is following tradition, and 2 bamboo pegs are used for total control over the full tang blade.

Notice: This product is especially dangerous because of the sharp reversed blade and should not be purchased for youths. Please be especially alert while opening and handling this sword.

Story of the reverse blade sword:
A former Imperialist assassin, Kenshin grieves for the lives he has taken. He vowed to never kill again, and traded in his katana and wakizashi for a reverse-bladed sword. Also known as sakabato, the reverse blade sword was given to Kenshin by a master sword smith named Shakku.

About the Rurouni Kenshin manga:
Rurouni Kenshin is a set of manga and anime series created by artist Nobuhiro Watsuki, set during the early years of the Meiji period in Japan. The English versions of the OVAs as well as the movie are sold under the Samurai X name.

The series tells the story of Himura Kenshin, who ten years prior was known as the Battosai (Battosai in the English manga and as Battousai in the English anime), a Hitokiri (or "assassin," translated as "manslayer" in the American release of the anime) who helped bring about the downfall of the Tokugawa shogunate which ushered in the Meiji period. As a result, he is often sought after by people who want to either hire him for his skills, or kill him as revenge for his past deeds. Kenshin himself grieves for the lives he's taken, and has vowed that he will never kill again.

The manga originally appeared in the Japanese Shonen Jump Weekly Anthology, and the completed work consists of 28 tankobon volumes. The United States release of the manga is being handled by VIZ Media. Rurouni Kenshin is subtitled Wandering Samurai in some English releases. The name is sometimes abbreviated as "RuroKen."

In Brazil, Rurouni Kenshin was published by "Editora JBC" in 56 volumes (each volume is a half of the original tankobon), maintaining its original Japanese manga reading format (from the top-right corner to the bottom-left corner of the book). Yahiko no Sakabato was released by the same publisher in July 10th of 2004, during an event that gathers anime, manga and games fans from all over Brazil called "Anime Friends", which is held every year in São Paulo. Kenshin Kaden, a Rurouni Kenshin encyclopedia was also released by the same publisher in November of 2004.
