Hoshiro was a legendary blacksmith. Few had the great honour of using one of his creations, but the prestige it gave made even the noblest families jealous. Passed down from generation to generation, his mysterious technique produced a blade of perfect edge, and the handle was made specifically for the one it was destined to. Many wished to buy these sabers, but the smith had a golden rule: only the worthy would be allowed to use the swords. Thus, only the purest of souls could pretend to the title of first owners of these swords, and all knew their names. This allowed the katanas, if stolen, to be found almost immediately.
Both extremely durable and safe, Calimacil's katana now has a thinner blade, steel-coloured with silver accents. The handle presents a contrasting look thanks to the black on white wrapping imitation. Golden details such as the pommel have been added for even more realism. This katana’s tsuba is sold separately and can be chosen among Calimacil various models, so your sword can be truly unique. This iconic sword from feudal Japan can hardly be mistaken, for its popularity in popular culture transcends borders and time periods. It is a classic weapon for samurai styled characters in LARP, or for the wandering ronins.
