Arguably the most famous swordsman and dualist of all time, the legend and teachings of Miyamoto Musashi have travelled around the world, inspiring Budoka, storytellers, artists and business people alike.
The Musashi Koshirae is modelled around one of Musashi’s historical swords, known for its ascetic simplicity and plain functionality. The archetypal Ishime finish Higo style hilt fittings are matched with a practical rounded Saya Kojiri (end pommel), strengthening and protecting the Saya structure.
The Musashi Koshirae is often paired with a classic Namako Tsuba, however this model allows for a full range of Tsuba options, Ito materials and colours and Saya finishes, allowing you to tweak and transform the original Musashi model according to your taste.
