Tag type: General
A katana (刀) is a type of Japanese sword (nihontou), and is often called a "samurai sword" because of its historical associations with feudal-era Japan.
The katana is characterized by its distinctive appearance: a curved, slender, single-edged blade, circular or squared guard, and long grip to accommodate two hands (the hilt is often given a distinctive wrapping of silk known as tsukaito).
