The parable that “Katanas are ****” that go round FunnyJunk is unfaithful, and admittedly simply as ignorant as “Katana’s are legendary weapons.”
Lots of Katanas as we speak are made with good metal (imported). Even when it was made with Tamahagane (which is made out of satetsu, iron sand), a lot of the slag and different impurities are liquified and hammered out.
Those that nerds purchase aren’t actually katanas, however often meant as props.
Clearly, they are not “legendary” as some individuals prefer to assume, however they’re like another weapon. I do not discover them higher, however weapons are instruments, and every instruments have their function, as does the katana.
I am a interest blacksmith and knife-maker.
