This is the massive hand forged Nodachi sword, or "field sword". The sword was carried by foot soldiers as a counter measure against cavalry attacks. The massive blade would be wielded by two men to cut the legs out from under charging attacks. However, by a skilled and powerful warrior the sword could be used by a single man and had the potential to cut both horse and man apart in a single stroke. During times of peace the sword would be carried by high ranking Samurai as a sign of status. Due to its length the sword would be carried on the Samurai's back. Although, this sword was slow in the correct hands this sword would become unstoppable.

The sword has a massive tang to match the length of the blade. Saya: The Saya is wooden with a black high gloss finish. The Kojiri and Koiguchi are oxidized copper with a simple, but elegant design.
