The Katana – Classic Weaponry of the Samurai
In history, the Katana was one of the swords that the Samurai used in feudal Japan. The Samurai sword featured a distinct curve with a single edge, and a circular or squared Tsuba. For its Tsuka, it was long enough for two hands.
The Katana dates back to more than a thousand years ago. Before it officially became the Katana, it went through different phases of development.
It started as a double-edged straight blade made from iron. Chinese swords were the basis of the first Japanese swords. This was until Japan cut their cultural ties with them. This brought about the birth of the Samurai.
The Katana is a Japanese sword which is a classic example of Samurai weaponry. While it’s no longer a practical weapon today, there are still pieces produced in this day and age.
The aesthetic properties of the Katana is a notable accomplishment. this is most evident in the field of sword making. The technology behind the sword’s creation is due to centuries of research.
