  • The Katana (long sword) was used by the Samurai during battles. The Samurai sword consists of a blade made by covering a soft iron core with layers of steel, and a hilt often made from wood covered with fish skin and bound with flat braid. The blade was protected by a scabbard (saya) of lacquered wood. The Samurai often gave names to their swords and believed it was the "soul" of their warrior-ship. The oldest swords were straight and had their early design in Korea and China. The Samurai's desire for tougher, sharper swords for battle gave rise to the curved blade we still have today. The sword had its beginning as iron combined with carbon. The swordsmith used fire, water, and anvil and hammer to shape the world's best swords. After forging the blade, the sword polisher did his work to prepare the blade for the "furniture" that surrounded it. Next the tester took the new blade and cut through various sizes of bones from smaller one to large ones. Test results were often recorded on the nakago (the metal piece attaching the sword blade to the handle). Today it is still the custom in Japan to make a gift of a Samurai sword on special occasions, as a reminder and respect for the past. This authentic Captain Nathan Algren Tachi is hand forged with HCR 1065 in Sinogi Zukui shape. Tri-polished mirror finish on Shinogi-ji. Engraved with Japanese horimono (Since whose serve with dignity and honor). Japanese silk wrapped tuska with real ray skin.
