How many Japanese Sword type you know?

Post by Ittachi_Kawasaki »

If you are finding information about Japanese culture, you must hear about Ninja with sword :lol:
Long time ago, Japanese sword had been practically used as a powerful fighting weapon in combat of Samurai. It was the perfect combination of strength and artistic beauty.
Made from as early as the Kofun period, Japanese sword (日本刀, nihontō) is said by Western historians to be one of the finest cutting weapons in world military history, for their intended use.
After that, there are many Japanese sword types (https://questionjapan.com/blog/location ... se-swords/) are made with different material and different look :o .
Here are some I know:
Chokuto
Tachi Sword
Katana Sword
Wakizashi Sword
Nodachi
