Musha Nobunaga Katana
From the Musha Kotoku series comes this intricately hand forged Katana with the crest of Oda Nobunaga. Featuring a full tang 1045 high carbon steel blade, this resilient katana is sharp right out of the box.
Oda Nobunaga was a powerful daimyō of 16th century Japan. Using alliances and military conquests, Oda Nobunaga unified Japan under the rule of the shogun.
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. The Kiku Gata style Tusba, Fuchi, Kashira all can be swapped out for a different set. The real wood handle is wrapped with traditional cotton.
