Japanese blades that were not to be used for some time were often removed from their typical ‘’Koshirae’’ mountings of tsuba and wrapped tsuka, and mounted into the featureless ‘’Shirasaya’’. Standard Koshirae mountings were prone to accumulate moisture over time, hence the placement of the blade into a protective wood-casing of the Shirasaya. Though Shirasaya mounting is primarily for storage, the blade is securely affixed and can still be used if necessary. Though this is ill-advised as the hand may slip onto the exposed blade during an impact.

This Shirasaya-mounted sword by Musha has a blade of high carbon steel. The habaki is of brass and the sword is mounted into a red-stained Shirasaya with a bamboo pin affixing the tang in its mount. Comes with a black cloth sword bag.
