Sharp Katana "Murasama"
Reference : A02AFUK814
Muramasa (千子 村正) was a Japanese katana smith, he is particularly famous for his dark side. He created his own school, named Sengo, in the 16th century in the province of Ise in Japan. Muramasa appears to have been a Buddhist monk, under the kaimyō (Dharma name) of Myōdai. The number of surviving Muramasa sabers is unknown, but it is assumed that less than 25% survived the ravages of time.
