A Shobu katana has an elegantly formed blade that ends in an uninterrupted sweeping tip. ‘’Shobu’’ means ‘’Iris’’ - an apt description for the similarity in form between the blade and the leaf of the Iris plant. Most katana have Kissaki tips with a well-defined ‘’Yokote’’ - a visible line that marks the beginning of the tip. The Shobu forgoes this for a blade that arcs into an aesthetically natural tip.

The blade of the Dynasty Forge Shobu Katana is crafted from 1060 high carbon spring steel. The sharp blade has been mono-tempered for shock-resisting flex and durability. The simple ring guard, a style espoused by Musashi himself, is crafted of iron, as are the fuchi and kashira grip fittings. The habaki and seppa are of brass. The wooden tsuka grip is wrapped with rayskin and overlaid with black silk tsuka-ito. Two Yajiri arrowhead menuki are wrapped beneath the tsuka-ito.

The wooden saya scabbard is coated with a black lacquer finish and has a matching black sageo cord. The saya has a cap of iron. The sword comes with a navy blue cloth sword bag..

Please Note: It is common and standard for the scabbards of these swords to have scratches, scuffs, small indentations or light and thin cracks in the scabbard lacquer.
