A big step up in blade quality and beauty from the entry level version, this ELITE version has the same customization options as the standard SBG Ryujin custom katana but features a much more visually appealing blade with active choji midare hamon line and traditional reverse hadori finger polish to bring out the rich detail and as such as the more traditional of the two.
YOU choose from 5 tsuka (handle) and 5 saya (sheathe) combinations and make it uniquely your own..
And the best part, it is all assembled for you at the Ryujin workshop based in Los Angeles within 7 days of ordering!
The original concept was developed by Mr. Sam Sung, one of the co-founders of Musashi Swords and with the modular assembly system he has developed, keeping a large variety of parts in stock and YOU select what design best suits your unique style WITHOUT breaking the bank..!
The ONLY difference between this sword and the others in this series is this one has slightly less customization options and comes with an iron, Musashi tsuba. That and the price of course, being $70 less than the full custom option.
Don't make the mistake of thinking these swords are just pretty ornaments - these are serious, practical blades that are surprisingly robust yet traditionally constructed and at our special introductory price, are some of the best cutting swords available anywhere near this price point. The ability to customize them is indeed just a very special free bonus!!
Whatever you do, do not pass this one by.
ABOUT MIYAMOTO MUSASHI AND HIS TSUBA
Miyamoto Musashi was arguably Japans most famous and skilled swordsman, having fought his first duel to the death at age 13 against a much older and experienced Samurai who was challenging all comers. According to historical records, Musashi threw the bigger man to the ground and beat him to death with a wooden stick! By end of his life, having retired to a cave at age 60 to write his famous treatise on strategy "Go Rin No Sho" (A book of five rings) he had fought at least 60 duels (though more likely double this number), several major battles and remained undefeated, earning him the title 'Kensai' (Sword Saint).
An eccentric character who defied social norms and lived his own way, without a master and upsetting the establishment who tried on many occasions to kill him without success, he was also a talented painter, writer and designed the tsuba you see on this particular sword, which depending on how you count them, has 5 'rings' and, like everything his life represented, is eminently practical - the iron construction being as strong as any other tsuba, bt lighter, subtly shifting the blades balance away from the handle to give it additional cutting power, which is further enhanced with the solid bodied/no-hi blade.
