    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.

    I ordered this sword last week and will honestly say that I was skeptical, ordering on-line you never really know what your going to get. However, I have to say that I am EXTREMELY impressed with the amazing quality of this sword. For $80 I wasn't really expecting much, but the detail and quality is incredible. From the finish, to the fittings and cutting edge, the entire sword just feel tight. I also ordered a stand to go with it and it too was of great quality. I had some doubts about the authenticity of all the 5 star sword reviews because there were so many of them, now I know why. I hope to be ordering another sword next month.

    As a collector of swords and a student of the martial arts I was very impressed and satisfied with the beauty and balance of this piece. It is an amazing bargain for under a hundred dollars. The Musashi line of swords are by far the best swords available for the price. They are exceptional and above average in every way. Thanks continue to give the best quality and price in the market!
