The Katana was created sometime around the 15th century. It was designed as a response to a change in battlefield tactics - samurai needed a faster weapon, one that could be drawn quickly and kill without much hesitation.
At first, the Katana was 70 cm in length - but it did change over time. Through the ages, blacksmiths shortened it to 60 cm and then moved it back to 70. Some katanas were as small as 40 cm in length.Tachi
This is the Katana's predecessor. It is slightly longer and more curved. It was used by samurai who entered the battlefield by foot at first, but it was later on used by cavalry alone. Because of its longer design, horsemen could easily hit and kill foot soldiers using it.
Because both the Tachi and the Katana are similar, samurai used to differentiate each sword based on marks placed along the blade and how each sword was worn by warriors. The Katana was carried at the waist, while the Tachi was placed on the back.
While Katana means ' sword". Tachi means '*big sword" - even though there's not a lot of difference between each other.Odachi
The Odachi is a two-handed sword, similar to both the Katana and Tachi. It is longer than the Tachi - its length is its main characteristic. Foot soldiers used the Odachi to hit. cut. and neutralize cavalry soldiers without having to address the difference in height other than with their sword's length.
Odachi means "field sword" and carries that name fora reason. This sword was used in open battlefields only. Because of its length, it would prove counterproductive to use it in constricted spaces.
