The History Of The Samurai Sword
The early origins of the samurai sword can be traced back over 1300 years, the first variations of the samurai sword we’re based on the Chinese swords (chokuto) this was a straight double edged sword. Then around early 700AD the first unique Japanese swords began to evolve which we’re the early designs of the modern day katana sword.
It wasn’t until the 10th century that the curved Japanese swords that we know them to be actually had curved blades, before that they we’re curved at the tang only. No one really knows the true date of when Japanese swords actually first appeared but Japanese myths point to the story of a sword smith known as Amakuni.
