Before the katana, there was the tachi! The samurai class of feudal Japan carried these swords during the Koto period - before the development of katanas. Designed to be worn with the cutting edge down, our Shinwa Daylight Samurai Tachi Sword has a white lacquered sheath with an intricately wrapped koshiate (sword hanger). The 28 1/2” blade is hand-forged of 1045 high carbon steel and the wooden handle is traditionally wrapped in white cord and faux rayskin. The decorative metal alloy tsuba has the appearance of pewter, which is an elegant contrast to the brass habaki. The sheath also has pewter-colored, metal alloy decorative accents, which complement the design of the tsuba. The master swordsmiths of Lonquan use centuries of tradition and experience to hand-forge our Shinwa Tachi Sword to be second to no other!

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