Musashi XL light Katana
The Musashi XL Light blades feature the same geometry as those of the XL but incorporate deeply cut grooves (bo-hi) to reduce the weight of the blade while retaining most of it’s strength and cutting ability.
Miyamoto Musashi, arguably the most famous swordmaster in Japanese history. Mounted in black, the Musashi Katana is faithful to the original down to the famous double-ring iron tsubas. The tsuka-ito is in leather over ray skin. The blade is hand-forged in high-carbon steel, with new geometry to enhance cutting ability. The XL Light blades feature the same geometry as those of the XL but incorporate deeply cut grooves (bo-hi) to reduce the weight of the blade while retaining most of it’s strength and cutting ability. This weight reduction makes for a quicker sword, well adapted for multiple cuts in lighter targets. Edge hardness is HRC60, back hardness HRC40. The grip is double-pegged to the full tang for safety. Supplied with a protective cloth bag and traditional maintenance kit.
