Musha Military Gunto Katana
From the Musha Series comes this beautifully detailed hand forged Military "Gunto." The full tang 1045 high carbon steel that is thoroughly hardened with an aesthetic hamon makes this a resilient sword that is razor sharp right out of the box. The metal alloy fittings are gold and metal gray color. The real wood Tsuka is wrapped with black traditional cotton. The tsuka handle features faux black samegawa rayskin with detailed metal fuchi and kashira. The scabbard or saya also matches the theme of the tsuka and continues with detailed metal accessories.
The Gunto was a Japanese military sword that was forged for use by the Japanese army after the end of the samurai era in 1868. This style specifically is made to replicate the traditional Shin Gunto, the most unique style during the World War II era with its beautifully designed fittings on the saya and the tsuka.
A unique feature is the integrated Bo-Hi on the blade. The purpose of the Bo-Hi is to help reduce the weight of the katana, which enables the user to wield the katana better and puts less stress on the hands.
All Musha swords can be fully disassembled. The Tsuba, Fuchi, and Kashira all can be swapped out for a different sets.
