Within martial arts, the sword has cemented its place as an iconic tool in demonstrations and weapons training. With the design focused on simplicity, the art of the sword is one that brings grace and beauty to any demonstration.
The katana has traditionally been associated with the samurai of Japan and is the longest of the samurai swords.
