Description Item Specs
The Munetoshi Competition Bamboo Katana Sword is a purpose built sword specifically for medium to hard target cutting. Featuring a custom designed habaki by Jake of the Cutting Mechanics and specially designed blade, this katana has been tailored to perform specifically for rigorous cutting of tatami omote and green bamboo up to 3 inches in diameter. This sword features a wider and thinner blade for better cutting performance and handling. The 1075 spring steel will endure regular cutting activities and resist bending.

*Please note that all swords can bend under extreme circumstances. Swordnarmory cannot be held liable for improper use of our products.

Designer's Notes: "These series of swords are designed and built with superb handling and cutting ability in mind, which is why I started with designing the habaki. Fractions of an inch or tenths of a millimeter have been taken into account in the dimensions of the habaki to serve as the heart of our competition grade series of swords. The habaki dimensions dictates how the sword handles and where the weight is distributed along the sword. Then the blade is designed according to the specific cutting purpose it will fulfill. How the sword flexes and cuts through a target are set by the dimensions of the katana, such as thickness, width, shinogi-ji width, and edge profile. Overall, I strived to design purpose-built swords that are tailored to the serious cutter, martial artist, or enthusiast."

  • Detailed Specs of the Competition Bamboo Katana Sword:

    Blade: The blade is made with very tough 1075 spring steel which has a superior heat treatment. This is so that the user does not have to worry so much about the sword bending or taking a set from a bad cut, especially on hard or thick dense targets. It has ha-niku or convex edge profiling right along the edge to give a strong edge with a shallow primary edge angle. This is to help reduce wedging through the cut yet still give a strong edge for hard targets. This sword also has a wider blade for better cutting performance. It has an O-kissaki with a wire-brushed gunome hamon.

    The blade comes very sharp and full tang.

    Saya: The saya of the sword is wooden with a black high gloss finish and bull horn koiguchi. The sageo is black cotton tied over a wooden kurigata with golden shitedome. The kurikata is placed the proper distance from the koiguchi to allow the user to easily release the sword from the saya.

    Tsuka: The habaki is a Munetoshi custom design from Jake of the Cutting Mechanics. The habaki, and seppa are made of brass, with an elegant and user friendly blackened steel tsuba. The fuchi and kashira is blackened bronze with dragon motiff. The tsuka has very tight hinerimaki using black synthetic ito over genuine white samegawa ray skin. The menuki are alloy gold colored dragons.
