A katana is a Japanese sword with a curved blade. The word "katana" can be written using different kanji, each with a different meaning. The most common writing is 刀, which can mean "sword", "blade", or "sabre". Other common writings include 斬刀 and 大刀.
Katana blades are traditionally made of laminated steel, with a hard outer layer and a softer inner layer. The hard outer layer helps to prevent the blade from chipping or breaking, while the soft inner layer absorbs shock and helps to keep the edge of the blade sharp.
The length of a katana blade can vary depending on the particular sword, but is typically between 60 and 70 cm (24 and 28 inches). The edge of the blade is usually sharpened to a very fine point, and the sword as a whole is quite lightweight and easy to maneuver.
Katana swords were first developed in medieval Japan, and were used by the samurai class of warriors. Today, katana swords are still made in Japan and are popular collectibles around the world. Katana swords are also sometimes used in traditional Japanese martial arts such as iaido and kendo.
