Modern tactical style 1060 carbon steel Kogarasu Maru style Katana by Honshu. MSRP $221 Tough enough to obliterate a cinderblock (click for proof).
Updated for the 21st century - the Hoshu Boshin Double Edge Sword with Scabbard represents a seamless fusion between high technology and ancient, time tested personal weaponry in the form of the ORIGINAL Katana design, the Kogarasu Maru - a style of blade that incorporated the curved edge the Katana is most famous for, but also the piercing tip of earlier Chinese styled swords from the Tang dynasty. In other words, it is based on an experimental hybrid sword design that has been given a boost and taken to a level that the great sword makers of Asia had only ever dreamed of with the purity of modern crucible steel and the modular nature of the high tech fittings.
Here is the official blurb from the manufacturer:
The Honshu Boshin Double Edge Sword fuses tradition and innovation to yield a masterwork of modern sword design. The sword boasts a 30 1/2” 1060 high carbon steel blade that’s unrivaled in sharpness and strength. Trading traditional trappings for sleek contemporary style, the cutting edge Boshin is an undeniably modern weapon. Textured TPR shrouds the handle for an ergonomic no-slip grip and the handle is crowned with an oversized polished steel pommel. The guard snubs fanciful ornamentation in favor of a practical pointed ellipse design. In keeping with the Boshin sword’s clean, functional motif, the scabbard is wooden with a semi-gloss black finish and features black faux leather wrapping and cotton cord. Wielding the Honshu Boshin Double Edge Sword is almost Zen-like – you just have to experience it for yourself!
Whichever way you look at it, for the price this is a high quality, robust blade in modern tactical style fittings with a high intimidation factor - zombies beware! MSRP $217 - our price, just $126.99.
