Description

The Teikoku Tachi features a finely made blade. Featuring a high polish with clay tempered edge. The folded grain and natural temper line are well defined. Delicately sharpened, a visually stunning piece, each is unique. 

The "tachi" was the precursor to the "katana". Along with some subtle differences its main point of difference is that it is worn slung, edge down. Opposed to he katana which is worn edge up.
