Description Item Specs
This is the Black Carbon Steel Zatoichi Shirasaya Samurai Katana
  • Blade: The blade of the sword is constructed from 1045 carbon steel and features an aesthetic hamon.
  • The blade is full tang, very sharp, and comes with a straight edge design.
  • Sheath: The sheath of the sword has been constructed from wood with a high gloss black lacquer finish.
  • Handle: The handle is the same stained wood as the saya with the trade mark three cut outs. When the sword is sheathed the handle and saya look like one solid piece. The handle has been crafted to contour to the tang of the sword, and the shape of your hands. A single pin secures the tang in the handle of the sword.

Nice display piece, but don't look too close August 18, 2015
Reviewer: Bruce C. from TX United States  
The laquer on the saya has thin cracks that are only visible up close. The blade is about what you'd expect for 1045 steel. The kisaki is not the same on both sides. I didn't try to take it apart.  I just oiled the blade and put it back in the saya.  It has a really tight fit for the tsuka and the saya. That's a plus.

Bottom line, it's a really inexpensive sword. I plan on using it for costume or display, but not tameshegiri.

Musashi Zatoichi Sword January 3, 2014
Reviewer: David  
When I got the sword, it had some dried grease on the blade and scratches on the brass fitting on the blade/handle.  After I cleaned the blade and the brass fitting, I tested it.  The blade was heavy and the peg looks like it was out of cork wood.  I would have preferred a brass peg or stainless steel peg and a double peg system.  Over all for the price, it should be a decent light cutter.  I would not suggest it for more then that.  It should be good for practicing martial arts.

Wow! May 1, 2013
Reviewer: D  
Best sword for the money on the internet bar none! Unbelievable value! Minor cosmetic flaws but for a blade of this quality I would pay the same price for just the steel.

Reviewer: Jamie LeBlanc from Milton, VT United States  
This is the best sword for the money I have purchased so far and I have several. I can't believe the price for what you get. I planning on buying the next several swords from swordnarmory!

OUTSTANDING June 13, 2012
Reviewer: Anonymous Person from Milford, CT United States  
Most impressed, stunning --- you would be hard pressed to find something this nice for the money elsewhere. You will be mad at yourself once it arrives that you didn't order it sooner.
Impressively sharp. Lacquer handle & sheath still look wet, very shiny.Snug fit.
