The blade is made from closed cell foam around a fibreglass core and finished with a strong latex coating, while the handle is a polyurethane foam cast that allows for greater detail and no maintenance.

Coming from successive generations of samurais, my brothers and I are guided by the Bushido; the code that describes the 7 grand virtues of our heritage. Thus we must strive for the highest standards of rectitude, courage, benevolence, respect, honesty, honour and loyalty toward our masters. These virtues guide us in times of war and peace, as does the wisdom of our daimyos lords. The two seven-layered steel swords of our DaishÅ, created by Grandmaster Musashi himself, are the extension of our will; as elegant as they are lethal. Having been born into the house of warriors, one's intentions are as crystal clear as a mountain spring: to grasp the katana and wakisashi and to die.
This elegant, slightly curved long sword is inspired from the katana models of the samurai era. Its elongated handle allows a comfortable two-handed grip. The blade is both flexible and firm, meeting the quality and safety standard that has made Calimacil’s name and honour.

Yet, when installed, the tsuba remains firmly in place and isn’t dislodged by opposing blows.
Asians legends and epic stories abound with martial artists whose mastery of the sword were near superhuman: from the humble and loyal samurai that serve a benevolent master to the lawless ronin whose travels are guided by the wind and willows.
