Product Description

The Boshin Katana epitomizes Honshu's celebrated knack for fusing tradition and innovation into masterworks of modern sword design and engineering. True to the legendary Japanese katana’s roots, the Boshin boasts a 30 3/8” full-tang blade that is simply unrivaled in sharpness and durability. Swordsmiths and scholars have long deemed the storied katana the sharpest weapon on the planet, and, fittingly, no edge on any sword, anywhere can contend with the shear cutting and cleaving clout of the Boshin’s impossibly sharp 1060 high carbon steel blade. It can literally slice through a cinder block like a hot knife through butter, suffering nary a scratch or fissure. But take one look at the Boshin and it immediately becomes clear - this is no ordinary Katana!

Gone are the samurai robes of old, this katana is more at home in the year 3000, trading traditional trappings and garb for chic contemporary style and cutting-edge appointments, the innovative Boshin is undeniably a katana for the modern era. Advanced textured TPR rubber shrouds the tsuka for an ergonomic no-slip grip you just can’t get from conventional ray skin and cord. The tsuka is crowned with an oversized polished steel kashira with handy lanyard hole, and the tsuba snubs fanciful ornamentation in favour of a pragmatic asymmetrical pointed ellipse design. Deep bohi extend along the sleek, gleaming blade from the base of the tsuba to the outset of the boshi, the blade’s placid terminal curve that culminates with the stinging kissaki, or point.

A tough black wooden saya, or scabbard, secures the razor-sharp blade. In keeping with the Boshin’s clean, functional aesthetic motif, the satiny smooth saya is largely unembellished, save the handsome black genuine leather sageo. Even among far more expensive swords, United Cutlery’s remarkably affordable Honshu Boshin Katana is sure to become the cherished focal point of your collection, admired and coveted by all who lay eyes on it.

With its fierce cutting potency and sublime feel, wielding this carbon steel masterpiece is almost Zen-like and beyond description; you just have to experience it for yourself! Truly a must-have for longtime Japanese katana aficionados, beginning sword fanciers and everyone in between, this sword brings together the old and the new, being born from a steel billet and hand forged into the blade in traditional ways
