Katana sword, made of 420 stainless steel and with the wooden casing being decorated with Japanese characters. It is a sword that has left its history engraved over the centuries.

Very few blades have enjoyed reputation in history, literature and cinema, such as the Japanese katana. This reputation is due to the legendary quality of the blade as well as to the almost mystical relationship between the katana and its holders, the samurai.

For much of Japanese history, only samurai is allowed to bring swords. If a villager with a sword is found, he will be killed on the spot, possibly with a samurai sword (which looks ironic in some vague way). The samurai often carried weapons other than the katana, such as the bow, the spear and the famous Hair Pin of Destruction.

After a trial and error period, it was finally accepted that the enemy's preferred class of engagement was:

1. Shoot with the arc from a distance.

2. Use the spear in a long row of body

3. Use the sword to fight hand-to-hand.

The bond between the katana sword and the samurai was sacred. The sword was always used as a last resort. The samurai believed that the katana was associated with their soul and had to be pulled only under the most difficult conditions (which could include the salvation of a noble or members of the family, the defense of an innocent from death).

In pre-industrial Japan, the sword was not just a weapon but the soul of the Samurai. For this reason, a vast part of the Japanese culture is based on their samurai and katana swords. The only people allowed to sword in ancient Japan were the Samurai. Swords symbolized the personal honor and social position of Samurai in society.

A Samurai was an elite member of the Japanese army and was expected to follow the "Bushido". Bushido, which means "the way of the warrior," was a code of conduct that guided the Samurai. Bushido has been associated with various values ​​such as courage, integrity, faith, compassion and respect. In addition, Bushido underlined the value of life and death in honor.

Each Japanese soldier had a collection of swords in his possession. A katana (long sword) and wakizashi (short sword) were a set of Daisho. These samurai swords have been treated with great reverence. Wakizashi was considered to be an emergency weapon that Samurai would be transported everywhere. Although a Samurai had to leave all his arms out of the house, he had to bring his wakizashi home and keep it under the pillow. This small sword was used during emergencies, near combat, or ritual suicide. The warriors used mainly the katana swords during the battles.

The katana sword is still honoring the history of the samurai and demanding a code of honor for its owner. The Samurai sword still has a strong historical and ritual importance in Japan, even today. The katana sword is considered to be the most deadly weapon in Japanese history and culture ... and now it's time to get to your hands .. !!! Honor it as any samurai would do .. !!!
