The "Odachi" is a traditional sword of Japan. It is the biggest sword style of Japan and originals from ancient Japan are fairly rare. They are a size up from the "O-Katana" (oversized/big katana). Our odachi is truly massive coming in at almost 6 foot long. In Japan the master samurai would have his apprentice help drawn the sword from the sheath as it is so long. Yes it can been drawn by an individual but it is easier if you have help. Not only is the blade extremely long, the handle (tsuka) is also very long. Adding more stability, control and torque when wielding.

Here we have a beautiful handmade Odachi, with a high carbon steel blade. The handguard the “tsuba” is decorated with “Gunbai” the traditional war fan of Japan. An affordable Odachi when many start at the range of a few thousand dollars.

A fantastic sword, fully functional and quite a statement mounted up on the wall of your feudal castle!
