Miyamoto Musashi, arguably the most famous swordmaster in Japanese history, was well above average height and Hanwei?s classic rendition of his Daito (long sword) reflects the impressive length of the original and features the legendary double-ring iron tsuba. The Musashi is mounted in black with a textured saya for durability and the tsuka-ito is in leather over ray skin. The blade is hand-forged in high-carbon steel and is edge-tempered to display a distinct hamon. Edge hardness is HRC60, back hardness HRC40. The grip is double-pegged to the tang for safety. Supplied with a protective cloth bag and traditional maintenance kit.
