The Honshu Boshin® Damascus Katana fuses tradition and innovation to yield a masterwork of modern sword design. The katana has a 30 3/8” Damascus steel blade that’s been folded more than 800 times, making it unrivaled in sharpness and strength. Trading traditional trappings for sleek contemporary style, the cutting edge Boshin® is an undeniably modern weapon. Textured TPR shrouds the handle for an ergonomic no-slip grip and the handle is crowned with an oversized polished steel pommel. The guard snubs fanciful ornamentation in favor of a practical pointed ellipse design. In keeping with the Boshin® katana’s clean, functional motif, the scabbard is wooden with a semi-gloss black finish and features black faux leather wrapping and cotton cord. Wielding the Honshu Boshin® Damascus Katana is almost Zen-like - you just have to experience it for yourself!
