Nodachi Sword - Ōdachi Sword - High Carbon 1095 Steel Japanese Sword - 62"

Product Description:

The Nodachi, or ōdachi, is a traditional Japanese sword known for its impressive size and historical significance. Used by the samurai warriors of feudal Japan, the Nodachi translates to "big sword" or "great sword," reflecting its formidable presence on the battlefield.

Historical Significance:

The Nodachi became popular during the Nanboku-chō period in the 14th century, a time when technological advancements enabled the creation of longer, durable, and sharper blades. To qualify as a Nodachi, the blade must be at least 35.8 inches (90.9 cm) long, with some variations existing. Due to its length, the Nodachi was often carried on the back or by a servant, as drawing it from the waist was impractical. With the advent of firearms, the shorter katana eventually replaced the Nodachi.

Blade Materials:

Our Nodachi sword is crafted from high carbon 1095 steel, known for its exceptional hardness and edge retention. With a carbon content of 0.95%, 1095 steel is one of the highest carbon steels commonly used in sword making. This steel typically achieves a Rockwell Hardness of 56-58 HRC, making it incredibly hard and capable of maintaining a sharp edge. However, 1095 steel's lack of flexibility is addressed through a meticulous tempering process.

Tempering Process:

To enhance flexibility and prevent breakage upon impact, the blade undergoes a tempering process. Clay is thickly applied to insulate parts of the blade that require softening, allowing them to cool more slowly during quenching. In this case, the clay is applied everywhere except the edge. This technique preserves the strong, sharp edge while increasing the flexibility of the blade, resulting in a sword that is both robust and razor-sharp.

Sword Details:

  • Overall Length: 62"
  • Sheath: Wood Sheath
  • Blade Material: 1095 Steel
  • Tang: Full
  • Handle: Wood
  • Rockwell Hardness: 56-58 HRC
