Samurai Swords
0 stars - reviews

The samurai sword dates back to the Japanese Edo Period and as far back as the Kamakura Period. The distinctive curved blade and long grip was designed as a two-handed sword and became the symbol of the samurai class. It was traditionally made with tamahagane steel that swordsmiths would fold and temper into a curved sword. During the forging process, a hamon unique to the swordsmith was formed and revealed when the blade was polished. The samurai katana sword is still used in a variety of martial arts today including iaido, kenjutsu, iaijutsu, ninjutsu, and kendo. In Japanese the katana is called dai or daitō which means “big sword.”
