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.
