The Honshu Damascus Broadsword represents a modern spin on a proven, time-tested sword design with sleek, rugged tactical engineering and perfect blade-to-hilt balancing. It has a razor-sharp, 33 3/8” Damascus steel blade that has a partial blood groove, which leads up to the hefty traditional handguard. The Damascus steel blade consists of 828 layers of folded 1045 and 1060 carbon steel that has a hardness of 50 HRC after oil quenching. The rugged TPR hilt gives you a no-slip grip and both handguard and pommel are satin-finished stainless steel. The 43 1/2” overall length broadsword fits securely in a black wooden scabbard that includes a leather belt hanger. Honshu continues to expand its exceptional sword line and this sleek, tactical broadsword is a must-have for your collection!
