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.

Amazing sword it really is paper cutting sharp I haven't tested much of it yet I'm very impressed with how awesome this sword is. There was some shipping oil on the blade but after wiping it off with the paper towel the blade was all good and shiny. I'm very satisfied with my purchase.

I ordered this sword around the middle of October, and I recieved it 2 days later (perfect timing being the fact I love In NYC).
Even before I can open the package, someone drew a musashi cartoon on the box, and the art was amazing.
I opened the box and it came complete with my certificate, a silk tie bag and of course the sword.
This instrument is a beautiful piece of work. The bamboo pegs are tight and in place, the ray skin is tight, with no open spaces to see any wood and the chord wrapped around the saya feels unique and tight, and done with care. Despite the Tsuba having a small metal smudge, it helps 110 percent with keeping the sword in place, and the spacers are well in place. No shaking or wobbling in the blade at all.
The only downside is it's not sharp, but that can be more than easily fixed. The weight to it is also up to par too.
I recommend this for those who look for beauty and quality, and once sharp, there's no telling the limits of this handmade 1060 blade. Thank you trueswords im going to order from you guys again.
