Musha Elemental Katana
From the Musha collection comes this intricately hand forged Elemental Katana. Full tang 1045 high carbon steel makes this a resilient katana that is sharp right out of the box.
The detailed tsuba depicts crashing ocean waves. Beautiful patterns of wind and fire are on the actual blade.
A unique feature is the integrated Bo-Hi on the blade. Bo-Hi is commonly known as blood grooves, but that is a misconception. The purpose of the Bo-Hi is to help reduce the weight of the katana. Making the katana lighter enables the user to weld the katana smoother and puts less stress on the hands.
All Musha swords are able to be fully disassembled. The Maru Gata style Tusba, Fuchi, Kashira all can be swapped out for a different set. The real wood handle is wrapped with traditional cotton.
