The history of the katana can be traced back to ancient Japan, where the sword was first developed during the Kamakura period (1185 -1333 CE). The katana was characterized by a curved, single-edged blade with a circular or squared guard and a long grip that could accommodate two hands. It was used for both ceremonial and practical purposes.

Over time, the katana was elevated and became an essential symbol of the samurai’s social status and martial prowess. It was not uncommon for samurai to commission swords with intricate decorative elements, such as etchings or carvings, to show off their wealth and taste. Some of these decorative elements included designs of dragons, which are often associated with strength, power, and nobility in various cultures around the world. With this came the creation of dragon katana swords.

In modern times, the term "dragon katana" has come to refer to any katana sword that has a design of a dragon figure on it anywhere. These dragon swords are often highly sought after by enthusiasts of the Japanese sword culture.

 

Unique Features of the Dragon Sword

In general, the katana is well known for its curved, single-edged appearance and is made with high-quality steel. The blade is sharpened to an excellent edge, which allows it to cut through materials with great precision and efficiency. The dragon swords at Swords of Northshire, in particular, will also be adorned with decorative elements, such as etchings of dragons on the blade or katana saya, which are symbolic of power, nobility, and strength.

The katana can also be designed with a squared guard, called a tsuba, which helps to protect the hands of the person wielding it. Some dragon swords at Swords of Northshire will have dragons cast on the tsuba hand guards. The handles, or tsukas, of these dragon katana swords, are long enough to be held with two hands, which allows for greater control and leverage when using these weapons.

It is also important to note that the specific properties of a dragon can vary depending on the material used, the craftsmanship of the sword, and its intended use.

Having a regular cleaning routine in place is key to maintaining your katana.

You can purchase a traditional sword cleaning kit that will have everything you need. There are three steps: removing oil, polishing the blade, and oiling the blade.

Using a sheet of rice paper from the kit or soft cotton cloth, remove any oil that is still on the blade from the previous maintenance. Take the powder ball and tap it lightly against the blade about every two inches or so along its length. Take a fresh piece of rice paper and rub the powder over the blade to polish it. Do this until both sides of the blade have been polished and the powder completely removed. Take the bottle of oil and apply a few drops along the length of the blade on each side. Use a fresh piece of rice paper to spread the oil evenly on the blade.

The most iconic and well known of all the Samurai swords; the katana is distinguished by its long blade and handle that is made to accommodate two hands and strike from a large distance. It has a curved, slender, single-edged blade with a circular or squared guard. The katana has a set of dimensions that separate it from other samurai swords. A traditional katana will measure 3 to 4 feet in total length, with the hilt taking up one-fourth of the total and a characteristic curvature of more or less than 1 inch.

A full tang katana is the sword where the tang extends to almost the whole length of the handle, which makes the blade and the handle the same piece of metal. This gives to the sword certain rigidity and makes it a very solid piece to enjoy.

Full Tang katanas are handmade swords. They can be made of various stainless-steel types according to the Carbon Concentration. The forging is the essential part of the production because it allows the samurai sword to be solid and relatively light. Commonly, the piece of metal is repeatedly heated by fire and hammered while the metal is being folded. The mounting of the different parts is a very delicate operation that has its origins deep in the Japanese civilization. Samurai are used to cherish their Katanas as their trusted partners, and they handle them with love and care.
