The Katana is one of the most recognizable swords in the world
Long known for its great weight and destructive capabilities, the Katana is a must have for any serious martial artist. Although the Katana originally came from the Japan, it has been adopted and used by many countries, particularly the Chinese. Some Katana Swords is made with different katanas, or grips, each one having their own unique style.
A katana sword is a Japanese sword usually characterized by a single curved, single edged blade with a square or rectangular guard and short grip for two handed use. It was first used by samurai in medieval Japan, later used by them in feudal Japan, and later on used by gladiators during the tournaments. Its name was derived from the Japanese word” Katana,” which means “attacker” or “knockdown master.” Originally a blunt weapon, the katana sword can be modified for several styles, like the double cut, where the flat part of the blade is used to parry an opponent’s attack, and the overhand cut, which uses a quick movement of the whole blade toward the attacker.
There are three types of Katana Swords
These days, these swords are made in the same way they were originally made, by a skilled blacksmith, who creates the alloy that binds the two edges of the blade together. There are three types of Katana Swords. The first two are straight, with a hilt that rests on the back of the sword’s blade. This type of Katana Sword is probably the most traditional one available today.
The third type of Katana Sword is double-edged, oride the fact that the outer edge of the blade can be shortened to make a sharp point. These Japanese samurai swords are longer, compared to other forms of Katana Swords. The blades of these kinds of Japanese swords are carbon steel, which make them very strong, and durable. A Katana Sword made of high carbon steel is much more likely to withstand a great deal of abuse, thus making them perfect for use by warriors of old.
sword maker feels that this curvature
The fourth type of Katana Sword, also known as a “curved Katana Sword,” has a more decorative design on the edge. In ancient times, the shape of the edge of a Katana Sword was more of a curve, more like a crescent. These curvatures gave the impression that the sword was “swinging away” in a fierce, attack, type of style. In more recent times, the curvature of a katana sword blade has become more of a U-shape, rather than a curve. The sword maker feels that this curvature gives the katana sword more of a graceful, flowing, and realistic movement.
Wakizashi (also known as Samurai Swords or Katana Swords) are smaller, Japanese swords that were mainly used as a concealed weapon. Typically, wakizashi weighed about one or two pounds. While wakizashi were used for stealth and surprise attacks, some samurai warriors used them in battle to cause extra damage to their opponents using a single strike to the opponent’s blade. However, unlike katana swords, samurai swords were used to scare and distract their opponents, allowing the samurai to move in and attack once the opportunity arose. For this reason, the wielder of a samurai sword must be able to move silently and with great speed, which explains the difference between the size and weight of wakizashi and katana swords.
