Dynasty Forge 28.5`` Musha 1060 Katana with Bo-Hi in Musashi Theme

Forged from extremely durable 1060 spring steel, this 28.5" blade is mono-tempered and machine polished. 1060 spring steel, when properly tempered, makes the perfect hard cutter at an affordable price-point. The Bo-Hi and Shinogi-Ji are hand-burnished to a mirror polish, giving the blade a crisp geometry. The sword is fitted in Musashi themed Tsuba and Fuchi-Kashira with a pair of sun and moon Menuki. The Saya is finished in 11-layer natural lacquer taken to a gloss finish. The 11" Tsuka is paneled with genuine ray-skin and wrapped in black cotton Ito.

The Musha class of weapons offers practicality at an elevated level. The focus is on durability and performance – these swords are a perfect introduction to the arcane of the Samurai warrior tradition. These well-balanced, robust blades are made of exceptionally resilient 1060 spring steel. The utilitarian design, offering no more than what is required to fulfill its purpose, makes this a superior handling sword offering surprisingly strong cutting performance at a very reasonable price.

The Steel
The traditional Japanese sword, while famous for its lethality and power, was not renown for being especially resilient to lateral stress or shock. Through the use of modern steel, the Musha 1060 line surpasses traditional steel in durability and resilience. Taking advantage of 1060 spring steel's inherent high yield strength, the Musha 1060 Katana is capable of withstanding inordinate amounts of stress. While Dynasty Forge does not condone sword abuse, or dangerous cutting (please see the FAQ regarding Tameshigiri), the sword practitioner can rest assured that the Musha 1060 blade will be more forgiving in the event of "less than precise" technique. The blade is capable of taking a 45 degree bend and returning true to center, making it an ideal cutter for repeated practice.
The Forging and Polishing Process
The blade is hand-forged from a single pure billet of 1060 spring steel and shaped and polished by machine. This gives the 1060 line very crisp lines and a durable and easy to maintain polish. Being machine polished, the edge can easily be touched up with a hone without any detriment to the finish, making the blade a high-performance but low-cost cutting sword. The blade is through-tempered, not requiring a differential temper for durability, to a Rockwell hardness of approximately 52-53. The blade is then mounted in traditional furniture, with genuine ox-horn fittings, natural lacquer, and Same panels. The blade can be fully disassembled for easy maintenance.
The Finished Blade
The Musha class of weapons offers practicality at an elevated level. The focus is on durability and performance – these swords are a perfect introduction to the arcane of the Samurai warrior tradition. These well-balanced, robust blades are made of exceptionally resilient 1060 spring steel. The utilitarian design, offering no more than what is required to fulfill its purpose, makes this a superior handling sword offering surprisingly strong cutting performance at a very reasonable price.
