It has the secure and comfortable grip which is a must for any functional sword. The sleek, modern design of this sword makes it a tactical dream weapon.

The Honshu Sleek War Sword is an exceptional functional sword in our Honshu line, which continues to be one of our most popular brands. The no-nonsense blade is made of 1065 manganese steel, also with a hard, black coating, and is good and sharp. The TPR injection handle is textured for that slip-free grip you absolutely need and its as sturdy as they come. The Honshu War Sword is built for hard use and up to any challenge.


The Honshu Bosin Wakizashi Sword is a modern take on a traditional katana that any sword aficionado is sure to appreciate.
