This Zatoichi Sword is made to look just like the weapon of the blind swordsman in the long-running Japanese series of films and television show, Zatoichi's Cane Sword. The African rosewood has a warm reddish hue that hides the ultra-sharp blade within. Polished to a mirror-like surface, the blade is full tang and battle-ready. Just like the blade in the film, our shirasaya-style weapon is made through traditional Japanese forging methods to ensure the balance and strength of this fully functional weapon.
Handmade Samurai Sword Features
The master craftsmen at Swords of Northshire repeatedly heat treat the metal to remove impurities and improve the metal’s strength. They then clay temper the metal, resulting in more flexibility and a genuine hamon line along the blade.

Hand Polished & Sharpened
Hand Forged & Clay Tempered
Made of 1095 High Carbon Steel
Traditional 14 Stage Finishing
