This sword is a beautiful, custom-built Osoraku wakizashi in aikuchi koshirae. It's name is Yamabushi, that means mountain warrior monks. Yamabushi sword was designed by Mr.Stacy Miller, and Ryansword made it in September 2018. Aikuchi is a type of Japanese sword mounting wherein there is no tsuba. The blade is an osoraku zukuri where the kissaki is more than half the entire blade length. The blade is made in honsanmai lamination with an edge made of 1095 steel for higher edge retention and the sides made of folded steel to give the blade a nice hada. It is clay-tempered and hazuya-polished to highlight the beautiful, natural hamon. The blade has a detailed, hand-engraved dragon horimono. The hourglass-shaped tsuka core is made of white hardwood and fully-wrapped with black-lacquered samegawa. The habaki is made of copper with a kanji engraving while the fuchi and kashira are made of blackened iron. The saya is made of hardwood with a unique oar-shaped tip and with a mitsudomoe design. Fuchi, kashira, koiguchi, kurigata, kojiri and Kaeritsuno are all made of real buffalo horns.
This sword can be customized as per customer's request.
