Japanese Katana Swords

One of the main weapons of choice of feudal Japanese samurai was the katana sword. First developed during the Muromachi period (1392-1573), katana swords are still made to this day, but with less traditional materials. Antique katanas are usually made of several layers of tamahagane steel that are smelted together featuring a slightly curved blade.

The name "katana" is specific to long swords that have been signed "katana." These are not to be confused with the older tachi style swords. When worn, katanas have the cutting edge facing upward and the signature facing outward. Tachi style swords also have the signature facing outward, but the cutting edge of a tachi is worn facing down.
