adopted by the martial arts
Japanese Tanto Sword is the primary sword used in karate and all traditional Japanese fighting styles. It has a straight edge and a banana guard. The word “tanto” comes from the phrase “onson” which means the blade and “tachi” which mean belt. These swords were originally made for personal use by samurai warriors. However, they have been adopted by the martial arts practitioners as a popular tool.
In ancient Japan, the samurai used these swords as a way to attack and defend. They were developed for close quarter battle and for use in sneak attacks and ambushes. The shape of the blade was such that it could be slipped into the opponent’s body or the blade could be hidden inside of the gourd or flower. This concealed blade or “Shurikai,” would continue to do damage until the opponent was defeated or surrender. Another variation of the traditional Japanese sword was the katana. It was primarily used in large scale battles during the reign of Meiji and the beginning of the twentieth century.
the Japanese martial arts practitioner
Today, many of the traditional Japanese swords are still used by the Japanese martial arts practitioner. There are two basic styles of swords: the Wakizashi and the Tanto. The Wakizashi is the shorter sword with a tip that is longer than the Tanto and generally used for hand to hand combat. The Tanto is the longer sword with a tip that is much shorter than the Wakizashi and was generally used for multiple-blade technique (also known as “Ryukyus”). The key difference between the two swords is that the Wakizashi is always one edged sword while the Tanto is two edged.
Both styles of Japanese samurai swords have been modified and adapted from the original designs. The blade has been ground down to make the blade more comfortable to carry and the tatsuba has been added to the handle. The satsuma adds a handle strip so that it can be held more securely. The Tanto blade is also tapered to make the blade more reliable in the cutting process.
a traditional Japanese handle
With all the modifications done on the traditional Japanese samurai swords, there are a number of replicas available on the market today. These swords are made with a traditional Japanese handle to accommodate the curvature of the tank. Some even come with scabbards.
