History of Samurai Swords

Samurai swords date back to the feudal Japan use by Samurai. These swords are the most prestigious in Japanese culture because of their historical value. The earlier Japanese swords had straight blades with no curves such as Nagamaki, but as time passed, these swords evolved and changed their shape.

The later coming swords such as Tachi and Katana were single-edged and had curved blades. All these swords were used by Samurai either to combat enemies on the battlefield or sometimes to perform the Japanese rituals.

These larger swords were mostly used by Cavalry. However, Odachi, because of its giant size, were carried by foot riders to combat the horsemen. Samurai’s also carried a small dagger called Samurai Tanto sword. Tanto sword was perfect for attacking the enemy in closed spaces, and it was also utilized for performing the Japanese ritual suicide.

Among the Samurai swords, the Katana sword was the most honored and valued. And that is why, today, almost all Japanese swords are called Japanese Katana swords. Katana has a medium sized blade, carried by Samurai all the time along with Wakizashi. The pair of both these swords was called as Daisho, and only Samurai was allowed to carry this pair.

Making of Samurai Swords

Samurai swords were traditionally made by veteran swordsmiths. All the swords were hand forged through the smelting process to give them the desired shape and strength. The Samurai Katana swords were fashioned only from the purest steel called Tamahagane (jewel steel).

Mostly two types of Tamahagane were used in making a single sword, one was high carbon steel, and the other was low carbon steel. The high carbon steel made the outer layer of the sword because it’s hard and razor sharp while the tough, low carbon steel made the inner lining of the Katana.

This steel is processed for many days to purify it from all the impurities. The swordmakers kept on heating and folding the steel to form a single piece of solidified steel from which the Katanas are made.

Then this piece of steel was hammered to give it the sword shape. At this point, the sword body is ready, and then comes the coating part. Most of the katanas are clay tempered by insulating a mixture of charcoal powder and clay onto the blade and heating it.

Once the sword is clay tempered, it is then passed on to an expert polisher. The blade is rubbed perfectly to provide it with a super sharp cutting edge. And the last thing was to mount accessories onto the sword. And this is how a single Samurai sword is made.

Even today, we use the same traditional method to make samurai katanas. But there are some people offering Samurai replicas, so be very careful of them and always invest your money in Authentic, hand forged katana.
