Last Samurai Tachi with Hand Forged Live Blade
Hand Forged Carbon Steel Live Blade
Deeply Etched Kanji
Cotton Wrapped Hilt with Real Rayskin
This is a beautiful replica of the sword given to Nathan Algren in the movie The Last Samurai. It is quite faithfully reproduced and is excellent quality for the price. The blade is hand forged and live with very deeply etched kanji translated to "I belong to the warrior, in whom the old ways have joined the new" that will not wear off in a hurry! Would be suitable for light cutting and with all "real" swords must be kept oiled. The fittings are blackened brass and are strong as well as very decorative. The Tsuka Ito is cotton wrapped over real rayskin.
I highly recommend this sword for not only movie collector but sword collectors in general!
