The Masutāzu, also known as the Ten Masters, are a group of the ten most skilled and feared swordsmen (and some cases, swordswomen) in the entire world. Their pure skill in the art of swordsmanship make even their names fearful, causing people to become afraid of them at the mere thought of them.
Becoming a Masutāzu
To be classified as one of the Masutāzu, one must have the peak of both mental and physical conditioning in their craft. They have to have to defeated a powerful sword practioner in order to even be considered for a position. Some current members of the Masutazu have personal swords with custom names to it, but this is optional as only some members have it. One must also have a bounty of over 300,000,000 as well.
