    Featuring the same clay tempered blade as our Bamboo Warrior Swords.

    Part of a new 1060 high carbon series from Musashi, the focus of this production was to forge the best blade possible for under $100. With the result being well within that goal, this blade is nothing short of an excellent value.

    Handmade, the blade is thick and comes extremely sharp. Like the more expensive models this blade can even be bent 45 degrees. This sword is well balanced and the tight handle wrap feels great. Comes complete with a black cotton storage bag and Musashi retail box.

    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.

    The first time I bought this sword, it had problems with the blade. I expressed my dissatisfaction in a review and True Swords contacted me and gave me a new sword at no extra charge. The new sword doesn't have any of the previous problems and it is truly beautiful in not only its simple style, but in its functionality as well. In all, this is a wonderful katana for the price, and I'm pleased to have bought it. Look no further!

    Amazing! Extremely sharp and durable. The entire sword is tight, nothing is loose at all. The tsuba is very unique and catches my eye every time I look at the blade. Very happy with this piece, without a doubt one of the best pieces in my collection.
