Kamakura Tachi by John Lee

The Kamakura period (1185-1333) was a crucial period in the Japanese history. It is characterized by the first military government (shogunate) which originated in 1192 by Minamoto no Yoritomo. The name of this period is derived from the former seat of government, which was in the city of Kamakura (about 50 km southwest of Tokyo). Together with Armor (Yoroi) and combat knife (tanto) the Tachi was usually worn on the battlefield. The Kamakura Tachi John Lee puts on a deliberately simple design, and thus differs from replicas of later epochs, which were often richly decorated and served only for ceremonial purposes.

Advisory Service: Questions and Answers

What is the difference between industrially rolled and hand-forged blade?

In the case of hand-forged blade our blacksmith takes the already rolled spring steel and forges it with hand on the anvil or under the monkey (drop hammer). By forging becomes the steel more compacted (denser). Industrially rolled spring steel blades are made by cutting steel plate into strips under drop shears. Then they are ground or milled/grooved and without further forging directly put into the annealing furnace and hardened in oil bath. The qualities of both kinds of blades do not differ from each other much since the industrial rolling is already very good. On forged blades usually have forge traces, which give them an authentic and unique look.
