The Seven Branched Historical Sword is a sword right out of Japanese legend! You will find it to be an impressive replica of the original, which was passed from a king of a Korean province to a king of a Japanese province during the reign of the Empress Jingu. This historical sword is an illustration of the art of swordsmithing inherent in Korea, at the time of its crafting. This reproduction has the signature seven-branched blade and that has been constructed of high carbon steel. The blade is 28 1/2" in length and has been polished. The handle is white lacquered hardwood with metal alloy fittings. This incredible sword is 40 1/2" in overall length.
I ordered this sword primarily as a decorative novelty item that I had in mind to go on a wall alongside the Kamidana in the training hall because it reminded me of the traditional flame/lightning swords often seen wielded by Deity figures from East Asian culture. It arrived faster than I expected and came non-sharp, with a beveled edge that could be honed to cutting sharpness if one wanted to make it so. I was actually pleasantly surprised at the thickness of the steel, and while I am satisfied with keeping mine as purely ornamental, it could reasonably be used for LARPing or Kata during practice.
