Musha Red Dragon Damascus Katana
The intricate, hand-forged Dragon Katana from the Musha Raiden series is razor sharp straight out of the box. This red piece features a beautiful damascus pattern unlike other swords with integrated Bo-Hi, also known as blood grooves. Bo-Hi reduces the weight of the katana, making it easier to wield, with less stress on the hands.
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. Real wood handle is wrapped with traditional cotton
