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 folded 1095 high carbon steel, beautiful folding grains are clearly visible. The tsuka is hardwood and wrapped with genuine rayskin and synthetic silk ito. The saya is made of hardwood. The tsuba and other fittings are made of copper with flower motify
