Product Information
Bushido Musashi - Black Shirasaya Sword Full Tang
Only $59.99

(View image by itself)


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.

As deadly as it is beautiful - Extremely sharp mixed with stunning detail

This sword embodies traditional Shirasaya style and grace in a modern day production. We put our focus on producing an unbelievably low priced yet fully functional Shirasaya, with emphasis placed on a razor sharp blade direct from the factory. Hardwood construction from end-to-end with high gloss black finish, just looks brilliant in person! The blade is secured with traditional means and can be removed for care or display. The blade is tempered and you will not see a machined cutting edge. Typical retail on a product like this is $99-to-$129 and we expect to sell out of this model quickly. Includes free black cotton sword carry and storage bag.

Product Specification:
  • Overall Length: 40"
  • Blade Length: 27" (edge)
  • Handle Length: 10.5"
  • Blade Steel: Carbon Steel, Handmade w/ blood groove, tempered and razor sharp
  • Handle/Scabbard Material: Hardwood with glossy black lacquered finish.
  • Package includes a free sword bag
    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.
