(CLICK ON the THUMBNAILS FOR MAXIMUM SIZE, FULL DETAIL RESOLUTION PICS)

Affordable, traditional and with some cool custom options such as selecting whether or not you want it with bo-hi (for a faster sword) or no-hi (for a more powerful cutter) and tsuka colors. But what makes this particular limited edition special offering so attractive is the sheathe - for the glossy black saya is wrapped with black rattan for extra strength and reinforcement, and topped off with a genuine buffalo horn kurikata (the knob that is used to secure the sageo cord to the sheathe).

While it's all very attractive, 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!!

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.
