Samurai Swords

Samurai Swords

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.”
