Musashi Wakizashi II
Partner of perhaps the most effective and lethal sword ever designed, the Japanese Wakazashi is
swift, elegant, and deadly. The designs in the Musashi are modeled after the crests and
patterns used by the Ronin of Japan. The Ronin were masterless Samurai; wandering
mercenaries who roamed the land for thousands years earning their keep by selling their
martial services to others. Those with honor are still remembered today: like the two legendary samurai
Miyamoto Musashi and Tomoe Gozen.
This katana DOES come with a tsuba. We carry all of the
tsubas made for this weapon: the Bonsai, the Dragon, and the Samurai. Please select your tsuba from
the dropdown list below.
Please note that the tsuba on this katana can be replaced, yet when it has been seated it remains solid enough to properly deal with full-contact combat!
