This Musashi Falcon Katana was hand-forged and carefully assembled by some of the greatest swordsmiths in the world. The blade is forged of 1045 and 1060 carbon steel that has been folded 11 times resulting in 4096 layers. The blade was then clay tempered to produce a true hamon line and an edge hardness of 58RC. But this isn't just a pretty display piece. this Musashi sword is a full-tang, battle-ready sword that has been double pegged to the hardwood handle to ensure it can withstand even the harshes cutting scenarios.
