Description Item Specs
 
This is the economical edition of the Musashi. However, this is still a top of the line blade for the price. The blade is hand crafted and very sharp with a good balance. The sword is full tang and can be disassembled.
Features
  • Blade: The blade has been constructed from through hardened high carbon steel with an aesthetic hamon.
  • The blade comes full tang and very sharp.
  • Scabbard: The scabbard of the sword is wooden with a high gloss black lacquer finish. Wrapped around the upper half of the scabbard is a black cotton sageo. The scabbard throat is blackened steel.
  • Guard: The guard of the sword begins with a bronze blade collar (Habaki). The actual guard is blackened steel in the double ring Musashi design.
  • Handle: The handle features cotton ito, imitation ray skin samegawa, and dull black fittings. The tang is secured by two bamboo mekugi.

For the price, wow! September 12, 2012
Reviewer: Michael Quiroga from Lansing, MI United States  
I'm very happy with my purchase. At a sale price of under $40, you can't beat this katana, period.

Fitting were all done well, blade was sharp and ready to cut some bottles right out of the box, and weight and feel are great. The aesthetic hamon is so-so (I could do without it), but the saya and wrapping were both great (again, for the price).

A perfect starting katana at a perfect price. Thanks SwordNArmory!

Excelent sword, well worth double the price! July 28, 2010
Reviewer: Edward from PA, United States  
I bought this sword on amazon.com before I realized it was cheaper here.  Oh well.  The review I posted is too long for this site, so go to the item titled "Full Size Samurai Sword Fully Handmade Razor Sharp Musashi Katana" for the full review.  http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B002W3JLHQ/ref=oss_product

My biggest problem is the blade's metal is prone to bending very easily.  It bends slightly even after milk jug cutting.  Maybe its my technique, but if the sword were made better it wouldnt be doing that anyway.  Milk jugs arent that demanding on a sword.  Also, its edge dulls quickly.

Overall, this sword is worth even double the price and I still highly recommend this as a first functional sword or someone who just wants a very cheap functional sword, but isnt willing to spend a few hundred for a higher quality one.

Blade: 26 3/4"
Blade (With habaki): 27 7/8"
Handle: 10 3/4"
Tang: 8 1/4"
Scabbard: 29 3/4"
Balance Point: 5" from hand guard
Blade Curve: 5/8"
