Musha Godai Katana
From the Musha collection comes this intricately hand forged “Godai” Katana. Full tang 1045 high carbon steel makes this a resilient katana that is razor sharp right out of the box.
This black- and gold-themed katana features a Maru Gata style tsuba. The detail tsuba depicts the five universal elements—Fire, Water, Metal, Wood, and Earth. The word “Godai” is the combination of the words (kanji) for five, (go) and great (dai) which translates into the name for one of the fundamental concepts in Japanese culture.
This katana features a unique integrated Bo-Hi on the handle. Bo-Hi, commonly known as blood grooves, reduces the weight of the katana. This lets the user wield the the katana smoothly, reducing stress on the hands, in addition to aiding advanced cutting techniques that require the katana to change direction rapidly.
All Musha swords are able to be fully disassembled. The Maru Gata style Tsuba, Fuchi, and Kashira all can be swapped out for a different set. The real wood handle is wrapped with traditional cotton.
