High-quality Crane Katana of the Exclusive Collection "Oriental Weapons" made by MARTO®

Certificate of Origin and Quality. Made in Toledo, Spain.

Historically, katana (刀?) were one of the traditionally made Japanese swords that were used by the samurai of feudal Japan.

The first use of "katana" as a word to describe a long sword that was different from a tachi occurs as early as the Kamakura Period (1185–1333).

The katana was often paired with a similar smaller companion Sword such as a wakizashi or it could also be worn with the tantō, a smaller, similarly shaped dagger. The pairing of a katana with a smaller sword is called the daishō. Only samurai could wear the daisho: it represented the social power and personal honor of the samurai.
