Bushido Katana (武士道刀)
Bushido, or "Way of the Warrior", defines the code of conduct
an honorable Samurai must follow. Much more than the western
ideal of chivalry Bushido is a way of life; in both ancient and
modern times. The koshirae of the Bushido set features various
samurai battle scenes. The blades of each are hand-forged and
folded from K120C powder steel. The saya are deeply lacquered in
gold with inlaid brass cherry blossom (sakura) flowers. High
quality ray skin (same) is used on the tsuka of the katana and
wakizashi, while the tsuka of the tanto is a gold-plated brass
with decoration in relief. The tsuba of the katana and wakizashi
is of blackened and bronzed iron, with detailing in gold and
silver and a battle scene decoration. The tsuka-ito on the
katana and wakizashi and the sageo on all three pieces are woven
from premium Japanese cotton. The fuchi and kashira are of
blackened bronze with brass detailing, and the kojiri, koiguchi
and kurikata are of polished buffalo horn. The habaki is a
one-piece brass construction. The katana and wakizashi blades
are un-grooved. The katana and wakizashi have medium-length (chu) kissaki.
The golden menuki are of hydrangeas in bloom.
