The Last Samurai, Katsumoto's Battle Sword

original movie prop

This sword was custom-made by the production for use by Ken Watanabe as "Katsumoto" and Tom Cruise as "Nathan Algren". The sword is made of resin and detailed to look like metal. Measures approximately 39" long. Wear from use is present. This particular sword matches on screen exactly in a few scenes where you can see close up shots of the imperfections in the wrapping on the hilt. One scene is when Katsumoto holds the hilt by his face while sitting by the fire. Another scene is towards the end of the movie when Nathan Algren presents Katsumoto's sword to the Emporer.
