Description

The "O-Katana" is a traditional sword of Japan. The "O" part of the name basically means that is over-sized. They are a size up from the "Daito Katana" (long katana). The O-Katana is a very large sword coming in at over 4' long. It is akin to the two handed European long swords in size. Not only is the blade very big on our O-Katana, the handle (tsuka) is very long also. Adding more stability and torque when wielding. 

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