From the 3rd to the 8th century, chinese and Korean craftsman came over to Japan. Tachi developed into KATANA during the middle of the 10th century, because the Japanese cavaliers required weapons match surprise attacks. After Japanese was defeated in the second World War, all activities concerning the Japanese swords were suspended by the Allied Forces. But the activities were gradually resumed in the wake of Japan's independence in 1950 and the beauty of the Japanese sword is appreciated by many people both in and outside of Japan nowadays, and become a good choice of art work collection.
About Handmade Sword: Real handmade swords have a wood grain like pattern in the outer skin. It comes from laminating many layers of steel to make the blade flexible. The blade is made by starting with a piece of hard steel to serve as the foundation of the sword. The skin is often made of hundreds of layers of softer steel that serve as a way to make the sword more flexible and resistant against breaking.
Next the sword is covered in a ceramic like clay with just the cutting portion of the blade exposed and heated and tempered. This results in a very hard cutting edge on a flexible yet hard blade. Then the blade is adorned with artwork like the tsuba and handle and scabbard.
