The Dynasty Forge Musha class offers surprisingly strong cutting performance at a very reasonable price. These blades are forged from 1060 carbon steel and through tempered for durability, offering a strong blade that is more forgiving to less than perfect technique.
Forged from extremely durable 1060 spring steel, this blade is mono-tempered and machine polished. Forged without Bo-Hi, this blade is the most durable cutter in the Musha line. The Shinogi-Ji is hand-burnished to a mirror polish, giving the blade a crisp geometry. The sword is fitted in Musashi themed Tsuba and Fuchi-Kashira with a pair of Menuki. The Saya is finished in 11-layer natural lacquer taken to a high-gloss finish. The 11 Tsuka is paneled with genuine ray-skin and wrapped in black cotton Ito. Includes a cotton sword bag.
Please Note: These katana now come with a single bamboo mekugi peg instead of two. Historically, single pegs were used for many katana.
Please Note: It is common for the lacquer finish of the scabbards to have minor cosmetic blemishing. Also, the Menuki may not match what is pictured as it is common for the manufacturer to use different menuki for different production runs. It is also common for the sword to be configured for a single bamboo mekugi peg to be used instead of two. Also – It is common for the manufacturer to sometimes place a metal cap on the end of the scabbard which matches the pommel cap of the sword. Please be aware that some swords have this cap and others are plain wood.
