Detailed Description

Musashi Japanese Swords Kenshin Reverse Blade

Before the Meiji Restoration, Himura Kenshin was known as Hitokiri (Murderer) Battousai. When the old government was overthrown and the fighting had drawn to an end, Hitokiri Battousai had disappeared. Kenshin wandered the countryside for nearly eleven years; the world presumed him dead or lost.


When Kenshin returns, he is no longer Hitokiri Battousai, for he has sworn never to take another life again. His sword is not a regular sword, but a reverse-bladed sword, meaning that he cannot kill anyone with his sword, but he can defend himself. Kenshin is a man who is trying to escape his past, and create a future for himself.


You can now own a replica sword based on this great legend. Although this sword has a functional blade this is not practical to use. This sword was designed for the die hard fan for aesthetics in knowing that blade is sharp and able to cut. This sword is 39 inches overall from pommel to the tip of the blade. The blade measures 28" inches in length. The handle is cord wrapped with steel fittings and a black hardwood scabbard.


For those unfamiliar with the reverse blade katana, the sharp side is opposite where you would normally expect it, while the normal cutting side, is the wide unsharpened portion of the blade. The idea behind this is when striking your opponent as you would with a normal sword, when using the reverse blade sword the opponent would be stunned, not cut.


Rurouni Kenshin, a manga and anime series created by mangaka Nobuhiro Watsuki, is set during the early Meiji period in Japan. The English versions of the OVAs as well as the movie are sold under the Samurai X name.


The series tells the story of an assassin named Himura Kenshin, who was known as the Hitokiri Battosai ("Man killer - Master of Battojutsu"). Kenshin later grieves for all the lives he has taken, and vows that he will never kill again.

Rorouni Kenshin takes up his reverse blade sword or sakabatou, and since the blade of the sword is reversed, can damage his opponents instead of killing them.

This reverse blade samurai sword is made by Musashi Swords and has a hand honed carbon steel reverse blade. Black wrapped handle has faux black raskin underwrap and is double pegged.

Hand honed carbon steel reverse blade (Sharpened by hand)
