Musha 47 Ronin Katana
From the Musha Collection comes this intricately hand forged 47 Rōnin Katana. Featuring a full tang 1045 high carbon steel blade, this resilient katana is sharp right out of the box.
This blade is inspired by the 47 Rōnin, also known as Chushingura, which tells the story of 47 samurais who left leaderless after their daimyō was forced to commit seppuku. The loyal band of rōnin waited and planned for 2 years before getting their revenge and executing the person responsible for their master’s death. Once their revenge was complete, the 47 ronin turned themselves in to the authorities knowing fully they would be punished by committing seppuku. The legend of the 47 ronin is among the most famous historical stories in Japan.
The 47 Rōnin Chūshingura katana is a traditional black katana with Kiku Gata style tsuba. A unique feature of this sword 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, which enables the user to wield the katana more smoothly, and puts less stress on the hands— perfect for advance cutting techniques that require the katana to change direction rapidly.
All Musha swords are able to be fully disassembled. Kiku Gata style Tsuba, Fuchi, Kashira all can be swapped out for a different set. Real wood handle is wrapped with traditional cotton.
