Tachi is a Japanese blade worn by the samurai class and came to prominence during the Koto Period (900-1596 AD). The tachi is a predecessor of the katana and differs from the katana in terms of blade geometry and mountings. The tachi has greater blade curvature and more tapered from the hilt (kasane) to the tip (sakikasane). It was worn horizontally through hangers called ashi and with the cutting edge down.
This tachi is made of differentially heat-treated 1095 high carbon steel with a beautiful notare or wave hamon. The saya is made of ebony wood, its color and grains are natural. The tsuka is hardwood and fully-wrapped with genuine rayskin. The ito and sageo are synthetic silk. The tsuba and other fittings are made of copper with chrysanthemum flower motify. The sword is customizable.
