An unrivalled open-field Japanese Nodachi sword.
A weapon designed purely for the battlefield, this Daikatana sword or long Katana, has the leverage and size to desimate enemy combants armed with standard weapons such as the Katana, Medieval longsword or Chinese Jian sword equivelants.
As an early predacessor before the extra long handled Nagamaki sword, this Odachi Katana with its overall length of 130cm and handle length of 36cm, this greatsword has a more conservative 36cm handle combined with an overall 130cm sword length. Compared to a standard Katana’s 26cm handle and 106cm overall length average, the big sword clearly overcomes both in weapon length and power generated by handle leverage.
The construct is a full tang folded 1095 high carbon steel blade. This steel is one of the highest carbon content steels available for sword-making, producing a hard enduring cutting edge and tip, with excellent blade resilience against edge chipping and blade fracture.
