The Dynasty Forge Musha Musashi Tanto has a tempered blade of 1060 high carbon steel. The tsuba, fuchi and kashira fittings are of simple and stately iron. The wooden tsuka has panels of inlaid rayskin wrapped over with black cotton tsuka ito. A pair of gold finished menuki are woven within the ito wrap. The tanto has a matching scabbard of carved wood finished with glossy black lacquer and a matching sageo cord.

The double-ring tsuba and simple iron fittings are quite emblematic of the great swordsman Musashi, who vouched for such a style in his writings. The artistically embellished fittings typical of late Edo period katana could perhaps have been met with a frown of disapproval by Musashi, who may have thought of such things as a distraction from the very real business of concentrated swordsmanship where every move and motion has a deliberate and direct purpose..

Please Note: It is common and standard for the scabbards of these swords to have scratches, scuffs, small indentations or light and thin cracks in the scabbard lacquer.

Please Note: It is common for this item to have different menuki when restocked from manufacturer. Menuki style may not match photos as shown.
