  • Masahiro

    No edged weapon in history has ever been surrounded with such mystique and tradition like the Japanese sword. The sword is so closely associated with the Japanese samurai that it became known as the “soul of the samurai”. It was both weapon and symbol, forged as a religious act and wielded with superhuman skill. A sword forged by a celebrated master was one of the most prized gifts that a warrior could receive.

    For more than 2600 years, the “City of Treasure Sword”, Longquan, is known for making the best swords in the world.

    Located within the border of South Zhejiang, China and under the Fengyang Mountain, Longquan is rich in resources that are suitable for crafting swords.

    During the period of Warring States (770-476B.C.), a famous sword maker named Ou Yezi created the most renowned sword in Longquan. Since then, the secret arts of crafting swords have been passed down from generation to generation.

    Masahiro swords are hand forged by master craftsmen with years of experience from Longquan. These master sword smiths combine modern knowledge with traditional secrets to produce superior quality swords with enhanced durabitity, sharpness, and exquisite craftsmanship.

    This disassembled Masahiro hand forged katana comes with a free sword box, free sword bag, samurai cleaning kit, 2 different tsubas, 2 spacers, 2 bamboo pegs, free hang tag and instructions for assembly. It features a black piano finish color with braid on the handle. Assemble this handmade katana yourself with a full tang construction.
