The Katana has become a stereotype of the Japanese sword. Since the most historically visible Japanese warriors, the Samurai, carried the Katana into battle as their primary hand-to-hand weapon, this sword has become etched into the minds of sword enthusiasts.

The under-appreciated beauty of the Katana is that it is yet another example of how blade design and technology combined with new tactics function in tandem to increase the overall effectiveness of the warrior.
