The culture of Japanese sword. The sword/nihonto in Japan was called Katana. But according to the sword shape and size, there are Tachi swords, Katana, Wakizashi and short(Tanto) swords.The famous swords exsist with graceful outlooking as a weapon and some are also as arts and collections. Each Samurai warrior kept two swords on his person - a long sword/Katana, and a short sword/Wakizashi. These swords were his principal weapons gut they also were an expression of his class and personality. The Katana is more suitable for the Long distance, and the Wakizashi usually used in the short distance. Because of the length difference, the Wakizashi will take less time when you take the blade out of the saya. There are two kinds of martial arts which trained the use of the swords: Ken-do and Iai-do. Ken-do trains how to fight and the person being trained wears a protector and fights with a sword made of bamboo.
The cross sectional shape of the grip of his bamboo sword is round. Iai-do teaches the skill of drawing a sword and striking with it. The cross sectional shape of the sword grip is oval. Iai-do teaches several techniques of how to respond in many different situations of combat."Hagakure" (literally it is "the shadow of the leaves") is a text of the Bushi, a class of the Samurais, which says, The way to be a Bushi is finding how to die. Loyalty and faith are most important. The Ken, or sword, is the spirit of the Bushi. To die for one's lord and for Ken is for their honor.
To be killed by the Ken is an honorable way to die. We sometimes got the question of people ask can the sword cut iron/wire? " or "can the sword cut bone? It is not wise if you bought a Japanese sword which is sharpened to cut iron/wire, no matter how much your sword is, carbon steel or folded steel, clay tempered or not, that will make the edge of the sword turned or break down the blade.
After that you will waste a lot of time to do the maintainence if that is still useful. What you see in the movie or video show that the sword can cut the hair with one breath;cut the iron/wire just like cut the mud, those are one-sided and exaggerated. They make the sword mythical. That is not impossible that there is no hurt or damage with the blade at all after Tameshigiri, just do the maintenance well.In the real life if that is in a fighting, the right way to stop the opponent is with the back of the blade but the cut edge, if you want to do a cutting test, you can cut the bamboo trees(fresh), tatami or slice paper to instead of cuttint the wire. We have the Chinese sword which can cut wire, if you are interested in, you can go and check in our store. The blade of that swords are usually very thick and heavy and sharpness is not so good as the Japanese swords. If you don't like the original mountings, you can choose the favorite ones from the options. Handle wrapping cord and saya cord should be the same color. If you only want to change one of them to another color, please inform of it specially.
