Standard Dotanuki Blade

Share on Facebook

Introducing model Seven from the Dojo Pro bo-hi series, this particular design is characterised by its lotus shaped tsuba and black and whites sageo.

In all other respects the swords in the bo-hi series are exactly the same as the classic solid bodied blade Dotanuki Katana. They have the same solid iron fittings and REAL silk ito wrap for maximum handle strength and integrity. They also have the same buffalo horn reinforced saya and hard wearing, super thick sageo wrap and in short, the only difference is the addition of a bo-hi (also known as a fuller or blood groove) but what makes it so special is that this is no ordinary bo-hi.

At considerable expense, the Dojo pro bo-hi series have a properly channelled, hand made bo-hi instead of the usual "shortcut" method.

While it may not seem like a massive difference, the reality is that this upgrade gives the sword an authentic Tachi Kaze (sword wind sound - i.e. the wooshing sound the blade makes as it cuts the air) unlike any other sword in this price range and of course, provides an option for anyone who wants a Dojo Pro Katana with a little more speed and responsiveness than the solid bodied blade classic model.

Great katana 11/11/2018
By Bud Gill
I have been practicing kenjutsu for 8 years. This is my third Ronin Dojo Pro #7. I gave away the previous two as gifts. You have to rate for me to give you one of my katana from my collection. I keep replacing this katana because I like it so much. I do quite a bit of cutting, and as advertised it can take a beating and still keep its edge. Each #7 has been consistent in that there virtually were no differences between them except I think the third one is sharper than the previous two. I think it speaks well of their quality control. The blade shows no signs of wear or scratching compared to some of my more expensive, differentially heated blades, from tatami-omote mats. It speaks greatly about quality, cost, and mono-tempering. Also the fit of the koiguchi is just right and will hold the katana when held upside down. A great beater and cutter, high quality materials, and very tight assembly. I highly recommend it.
