Did a Giant Nephilim Samurai Use This Sword? (Video)

Saturday, October 1, 2016 11:30
% of readers think this story is Fact. Add your two cents.

The longest nihonto (Japanese blade): This Odachi called “Norimitsu Odachi” is 377 cm long and weighs 14.5 kilograms.

It´s a real, “live” shinken. It was forged as one piece. This sword is from the 15th century. Who would have used such a massive sword? What was the size of the samurai who used this sword for battle?

Was this sword used by a giant or is there another explanation? Perhaps you can let us know in the comments. Thanks.

    Always intriguing but…..

    Sept. 1986, I visited a site on a mountain side, a few miles NW of Iwakuni Marine Corp Air Station, Japan, where samurai swords had been made for many centuries. Also had a museum containing sword relics going back about a thousand years. We also received a tour through the sword construction facilities with a English speaking guide describing and demonstrating the step by step process of the sword building. The size of this sword definitely indicates immense size of the individual this was built for.

    This sword, like all oversized Japanese swords, was meant to be used from horse back. This is not foot soldiers weapon. It was used a bit like giant scythe while riding through opposing ranks. Japanese giants are refined enough to be miniaturized anyway. :cool:

      little correction: those swords are not meant for horse rider. They are way too heavy.
      they were used by foot soldier to cut down horse legs to break a charge.
      voila :)
