John Lee Musashi Ichi Tanto

Miamoto Musashi lived from 1584 to 1645 and went down in Japanese history as one of the most impressive samurai. He is referred to as the best Japanese swordsman. He was artist and artisan at the same time.
The Musashi Ichi Tanto has a handforged blade made of carbon steel with a fine hamon and has been tempered traditionally. The sharp blade features a hi (fuller) to reduce the total weight. The handle (tsuka) is made of wood, has been coated with real fish skin and features two menukis. In addition it has been traditionally wrapped in black cotton. The tang is especially long and fixed with two bamboo pegs (mekugi). The scabbard (saya) is made of wood and the blade collar (habaki) is made of brass. This model has been made according to original museum exhibitions. The tanto comes with a certificate of origin, wrapped in cloth and packed in a high-quality wooden box. All measures are subject to estimation.
