Description

Himura Kenshin's Reverse Blade Katana measures 40" in overall with a 29" reverse edged blade.

A former Imperialist assassin, Kenshin grieves for the lives he has taken. He vowed to never kill again, and traded in his katana and wakizashi for a reverse-bladed sword. Also known as sakabatō, the reverse blade sword was given to Kenshin by a master swordsmith named Shakku.

About the Rurouni Kenshin manga:
Rurouni Kenshin is a set of manga and anime series created by artist Nobuhiro Watsuki, set during the early years of the Meiji period in Japan. The English versions of the OVAs as well as the movie are sold under the Samurai X name.

The series tells the story of Himura Kenshin, who ten years prior was known as the Battōsai (Battōsai in the English manga and as Battousai in the English anime), a Hitokiri (or "assassin," translated as "manslayer" in the American release of the anime) who helped bring about the downfall of the Tokugawa shogunate which ushered in the Meiji period. As a result, he is often sought after by people who want to either hire him for his skills, or kill him as revenge for his past deeds. Kenshin himself grieves for the lives he's taken, and has vowed that he will never kill again.

The manga originally appeared in the Japanese Shonen Jump Weekly Anthology, and the completed work consists of 28 tankōbon volumes. The United States release of the manga is being handled by VIZ Media. Rurouni Kenshin is subtitled Wandering Samurai in some English releases. The name is sometimes abbreviated as "RuroKen." Click here for a list of rurouni kenshin manga chapters.

In Brazil, Rurouni Kenshin was published by "Editora JBC" in 56 volumes (each volume is a half of the original tankōbon), maintaining its original Japanese manga reading format (from the top-right corner to the bottom-left corner of the book). Yahiko no Sakabatō was released by the same publisher in July 10th of 2004, during an event that gathers anime, manga and games fans from all over Brazil called "Anime Friends", which is held every year in São Paulo. Kenshin Kaden, a Rurouni Kenshin encyclopedia was also released by the same publisher in November of 2004.
