Detail Description

As Shirasaya refers to a special sword mount, which was formerly used for gentle storage of the blade. Especially in times of peace, the blades were kept therein for optimum protection. The unpainted Magnolia wood absorbs the moisture inside the vagina on, it leads to the outside and thus protects the blade from rust.

Many Shirasaya were provided with a "Sayagaki", an inscription, which gave information about smith, origin and classification. On the streets of Japan, the inconspicuous outfit was no handle and hilt especially towards the end of the 19th century use.

At that time, the guiding Samurai swords was prohibited by the Emperor. The Shirasaya mount, which looked very similar to a wooden sword and wooden stick, was a clever way yet unnoticed to carry the sword.

- Sword in shinogi-zukuri style with groove (Bo-Hi), hand forged from 1045 carbon steel
- The blade is sharpened with incorporated Hamon-line for a very authentic look.
