(View image by itself)

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.

This stunning layered blade demands attention!

Hand folded and carefully shaped, no two swords are exactly the same. Over 4000 layers ripple across the sharp, hand honed blade. Very attractive and well balanced, we can't stop admiring this sword. The photos do not do the blade justice!

We are especially drawn to the unique layer patterns within the blood groove.

Featuring all copper tsuba and fittings with a custom oxidized antique finish. Well suited to be the center of your katana collection, this sword comes ready for cutting use right our of the box. Shown below, this is a full tang sword with signature and dual bamboo peg construction.

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.
