Samurai Swords for Sale - Spice up Your Sword Collection

If you're into sword collecting, then at some point you will have to consider adding an authentic samurai sword to your collection. They will add a certain credibility and mystique to your sword collection.

While sword collecting can be a time consuming and fairly expensive hobby, the potential payback both emotionally and financially can be immense.

Samurai swords first came into prominence in the middle ages amongst people from the Orient. A samurai sword (if you have not seen one) typically has a very sharp edge. They were often used in combat between warriors and during war. These unique swords were created by craftsmen who employed forging and heat treating methods to make these unique swords that could withstand intense pressure in battle without breaking while being sharp enough to inflict maximum harm to an enemy.

Types of Samurai Swords

There are typically 3 main types of these Japanese swords

Katana - these are probably the most popular samurai swords around. They typically measure more than 24 inches and were the most common companion to a samurai warrior. One of the distinct features of the katana sword is its look - which is curved, slim, single edged blade and has a long grip so you can hold it with both hands. It is known for its sharpness so you have to be very careful when you have one in your possession.

Wakizashi - these are smaller than the katana and typically measure between 12 to 24 inches. It's been said that the Wakizashi were usually worn together with the katana by samurai warriors. The katana and Wakizashi were companion swords used by samurai warriors to monstrous effect in battle.

Tachi - these swords tend to be a bit more curved and generally longer than the katana. Its easy to mistake a katana for a tachi and vice versa. The manner in which a samurai sword was worn was used to identify if it was a tachi or a katana. It was traditionally used while samurai rode on horseback as it was long enough to hurt soldiers on foot.

While it is good to go to a physical shop and see a sword before buying, this might be impossible if you live in a town or city that does not have a sword shop. Make sure you do your due diligence before buying.
Adding a samurai sword to your collection will make a great addition to your collection plus a fantastic gift to someone you love or respect.
