Battosai is comprised of a machined aluminum alloy hilt that’s sandblasted and anodized. The hilt measures 315mm (13.0 inches) long and has an average outside diameter (OD) of 33mm (1.29 inches). The tsuba (handguard) is about 79mm (3.11 inches) in diameter.

Buyer may select one of three authentic Japanese katana tsuba: koshirae (iron), aoi gata (hollyhock), or maru gata (round). The tsuba both balances the saber and guards the wielder’s hand.

The hilt is designed as a two-handed saber with a maneuverable tapered grip in the upper section of the hilt and faux-leather black wrap in the lower grip section. Brass screws accent the hilt near the 2.1 mm recharge port and illuminated switch. Charger is included.

Battosai comes equipped with a budget Kitsaber/LGT soundboard with 9 sound fonts, mute function, and eco-swing (i.e. entry-level version of smooth swing). Powered by a 18650 li-ion battery, the 9W in-hilt RGB LED saber features 14 blade profiles. The saber features standard sound effects including: ignition/retraction and idle hum.
