History of Tachi Swords

Tachis are one of the prestigious Japanese swords which was first used by Samurai of feudal Japan. The word ‘Tachi’ translates as ‘soul of Samurai.’ It got its name from its emergence and dominance among the Samurai people.

The manufacturing of Tachi swords dates back to 1596 (Koto period), and they are considered to be one of the oldest and most used Samurai swords. Unlike other swords of that time, the Tachi had a longer blade, and it became an essential weapon for the battlefields.

The Cavalry (Japanese horsemen) could easily use this sword because of its length and lightweight. Although it was larger than other Japanese Samurais, it was considerably lighter even than the Katanas. That is why these were easy to wield and carry with one hand. And from there on, it was regarded as a compulsory sword for Japanese Cavalry.

Traditionally made authentic Tachi swords

Authentic Tachis were curved, and the curves moved upward from middle to tip. The swords during the koto period were mostly straight, and they required more effort to wield around with them. The curved blade provided a balance between precision and momentum and generated a very high impact. That is why Tachi became famous in no time. With the emergence of Tachi swords, the old straight swords were replaced.

Even today, we offer you the same curved authentic Tachi with exact finishes. Our swords are not just the ordinary piece of steel; rather, they’re exceptional pieces of antique art. We offer you a huge collection of Tachi swords for sale.

Tachi was used as the primary weapon before Katana, and even after the emergence of Katana, Tachi was worn by Cavalry Samurai.

Another considerable difference is their blade length; Tachi has a comparatively larger (up to 75 cm) and thinner blade while the Katana blade is smaller (up to 60 cm) and wider. Both these also differ in their weight. Because the Tachi was used by Samurai horsemen, they were made lightweight and easy to handle.

In contrast, the Katana was a heavy battlefield sword to maximize the blow impact. Plus, Tachi and Katana both have different signatures on it, which makes them stand unique and distinctive.
