Katana, 100 cm/40 inches

SKU 328 Category Tag




Historically, katana (刀?) were one of the traditionally made Japanese swords that were used by the samurai of feudal Japan.
The first use of “katana” as a word to describe a long sword that was different from a tachi occurs as early as the Kamakura Period (1185–1333).
The katana was often paired with a similar smaller companion sword, such as a wakizashi or it could also be worn with the tantō, a smaller, similarly shaped dagger. The pairing of a katana with a smaller sword is called the daishō. Only samurai could wear the daisho: it represented the social power and personal honor of the samurai.
The katana is characterized by its distinctive appearance: a curved, slender, single-edged blade with a circular guard and long grip to accommodate two hands. It has historically been associated with the samurai of feudal Japan.
