The Miyamoto Musashi Daito (Long Sword) by Paul Chen

Miyamoto Musashi, arguably the most famous swordmaster in Japanese history, fought more than 60 duels before retiring and writing his famous treatise on swordplay, the "Book of Five Rings". Musashi was well above average height and his Daito (long sword) was made to match his size. Development of the two-sword style of swordplay, with the Daito (long sword) and Wakizashi being used together, is credited to Musashi. The Hanwei reproduction of the Musashi Daito is faithful to the original down to the famous double-ring iron tsubas



The Musashi Katana is mounted in black, with subtle copper inlays in the saya, and the tsuka-ito is in leather over ray skin. The blade is hand-forged in high-carbon steel and is edge-tempered using the traditional clay tempering method, resulting in a distinct hamon. Edge hardness is 60HRC, back hardness 40HRC. The grip is double-pegged to the tang for safety. Supplied with a protective cloth bag and traditional maintenance kit.
