From the year 1701 through 1703, the 47 Ronin breathed, planned and finally executed their revenge for their Lord and Master, Asano Naganori.

This exciting collection follows the 47 Ronin during their quest for that revenge.  Through Tadashi’s eyes you will feel as if you were in the center of battle by his side wielding your own sword.

This weapon was made from the finest iron ore Mt Fuji could produce. Etched with battle scars this sword tells its own story.
