Product Description

Musashi spent much of his later life in the Kyushu islands of Japan, under the service of Lord Hosokawa Tadashi, the resident Daimyo of Kumamoto Castle. The Kumamoto region was known in those days as 'Higo province', and for this reason the style of swords favoured by those serving the Hosokawa clan are known as 'Higo Koshirae'.

A antique finish, rounded Kashira and Kojiri, make this sword a distinct example of a classic Higo Koshirae, with design elements inspired by swords actually owned by Musashi himself - now on display at the Shimada museum in Kumamoto. 

Perfect for all levels of Iaidoka, this beautiful sword is also perfect for those looking for a distinctive, yet historical display piece.

Made using a lightweight Zinc/Aluminium Alloy blade, this sword is compliant with Japanese laws relating to imitation swords. Steel swords, with the exception of genuine Japanese made, registered Shinken, are not allowed to be brought to Japan for training purposes. As this sword is made using modern Zinc/Aluminium alloy, it is NOT affected by this restriction and can be brought to and from Japan freely.
