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!
