The First Katana of the Kamakura Period
The Katana, for instance, was longer and less curved than the Tachi. Plus, it was also more powerful and stronger than the latter. The Mongol invasions in Japan led them to change the designs of their Nihonto. This marked the evolution of the Tachi into what would transform into the Katana.
This change continued until the early Muromachi which was from 1337 to 1573. Starting from the year 1400, longer swords with Katana-styled Mei, appeared. The warriors started tp wear their Katana swords with their edge facing up.
Based on tradition, the Samurai would often wear the Nihonto sword with the Mei away from the user. When the wearer carried the Tachi in the Katana style – its cutting edge up – its signature would face the wrong way.
The popularity of the Katana was due to the change in close combat warfare. Quick drawing of the sword was better since victory depended on short response times, in which the Katana is a perfect fit.
