Miyamoto Musashi (Circa 1584 – 1643) is arguably one of the most famous Samurai in Japanese history. He is known to have many stories which the Japanese always mention when talking about Samurai.His upbringing as a Ronin is one of Musashi’s unique features, a history-defining legend spending his early years as mostly a Samurai who was not a member of any clan. He would often apply a unique sword technique Nito-Ryu, which means to use Daisho (Long sword and short sword) at once.
He fought duels against other Samurai either on duty or for his own sake and never lost to anyone. That eventually made him the honored superstar of Samurai history, as he won the duels over 60 times.He also wrote a world-famous book about martial arts and philosophy called The Book of Five Rings. His style ‘Niten-Ichiryu’ that he has established in his last years is one of the forms of Japanese martial arts being practiced even today.This product features one of the copies of Musashi’s sword made during the Samurai times.
It complements the sacred dragon with the Fuchi-Kashira fittings and has mild curvature on the blade resembling the original.
