And here is the last top ten for this month, a follow up to the Top 10 Most Effective MEDIEVAL Weapons which I know you guys liked, on this video we will go through the most effective weapons used by samurai and ashigaru in Feudal Japan.
The most iconic Japanese weapon is the katana; It is characterized by its particular appearance: a single-edged, curved blade with a circular or squared guard and long grip for grabbing with two hands.
The first use of “katana” (gatana) as a word to describe a long sword that was different from a tachi occurs in the Kamakura Period (1185–1333).
The katana became very popular amongst samurai due to the changing nature of close-combat warfare. The quicker draw of the sword was well suited to combat where victory depended heavily on short response times.
The katana was often paired with a 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.
The katana is generally defined as the standard sized, moderately curved (as opposed to the older “tachi” style featuring more curvature) Japanese sword with a blade length greater than 60 cm ( 23 1⁄2 inches).It is characterized by its distinctive appearance: a curved, slender, single-edged blade with a circular or squared guard (tsuba) and long grip to accommodate two hands.
