From the katana sword and wakizashi to the tanto, Japanese swords come in many different styles and sizes. The katana is the most common and recognizable samurai sword. It has a curved blade, circular or squared tsuba, and a long, two-handed grip. The wakizashi is typically a shorter sword that, when worn with the katana, was the official sign of a samurai. Tantos are Japanese knives that could also be paired with a katana, in place of a wakizashi.
Samurai swords and their different styles are unique recreations of history, hand forged into a work of art. If you’re ready to create your own custom made sword, browse our options today to learn more.
