During the Koto period, before the development of katanas, the samurai class of feudal Japan carried tachi swords and, now, our master swordsmiths of Lonquan use centuries of tradition and experience to hand-forge our Shinwa Tachi Swords to be second to no others! Tachis were designed to be worn with the cutting edge down so they were usually designed with a koshiate (sword hanger). True to tradition, our Shinwa Daylight Samurai Tachi Sword has a white lacquered sheath with an intricately wrapped koshiate. The decorative metal alloy tsuba has the appearance of pewter, which is an elegant contrast to the brass habaki that leads into the 28 1/2” hand-forged 1045 high carbon steel blade. The wooden handle is traditionally wrapped in white cord and faux rayskin and has an ornate pommel. The sheath has pewter-colored, metal alloy decorative accents, which complement both the design of the tsuba and the pommel.

very nice Reviewed by Gary Wolff on Aug 21, 2018   5 out of 5

very sharp right out of the box, great blade great balance



Tachi is like Katana, but better blade tip Reviewed by on May 07, 2018   5 out of 5

Wasn't expecting such a functional blade. Excellent quality. I like how the blade part is thin and the back of the blade is thick and heavy. I also wasn't expecting it to be so massive. Very pleased with the length it seems best for me, only 5' 6". Fits perfectly into scabbard which is kindof light but seems very sturdy. I like the balance, seems to have massive power but not too much weight as to pose an issue with mobility. Being a purest, I am looking for strongest (guard) possible, not sure of what metal is used for it, got it anyway and was exactly perfect for me. I do not know what this guard would do if it was struck by another blade, just as a defensive weapon it is great. I don't like the Katana's angled tip which was an adaptation for going through armor at the time, I think that's the only difference between the Katana and this Tachi. Much more of a slashing type of sword, I feel.



Good Piece Reviewed by Elkan Kirkling on Jan 22, 2018   4 out of 5

Well made for the price. I am very happy with this blade. My only caveat is that the accent on the middle of the sheath has tiny nails holding the accent there and the accent wiggles just a little bit, and the hamon is obviously machined because you can see slight brush marks. All of these things considered however; I am thrilled with this katana. I will be making more purchases from BUDK for katana in this price range in the future.
