Japanese Helmets

The Japanese helmet, also called a kabuto, was worn with traditional Japanese armour by feudal warriors known as samurai. The kabuto helmet features a strong bowl that protects the crown of the head and a suspended series of articulated plates that protect the neck. Often the Japanese helm displays a crest of the wearers clan, adorned with Maedate (Front Crests), Wakidate (Side Crests), or Ushirodate (Rear Crests). These designs can be family or clan emblems or flat or sculptural objects representing animals, mythical entities, or prayers. Horns are particularly common ornaments, and many oriental helmets showcase Kuwagata, or stylized deer horns. A traditional kabuto was usually constructed from several hundred metal plates arranged vertically and riveted together. We carry an excellent selection of gorgeous samurai helmets, including a number inspired by historical figures like Daisho Kake, Date Masamune, Oda Nobunaga, and Takeda Shingen.

Japanese Tantos

Read More
One of the iconic blades of Japan, the tanto is a Japanese dagger used by samurai during the feudal period. Strictly speaking, a functional tanto possesses a guard and has all of the fittings of a larger sword like a katana or wakizashi. The Japanese tanto blade rarely exceeds 12 inches in length. A traditional tanto was usually carried along with a katana as a kind of side arm. The Japanese tanto was not left at the door when paying a visit, unlike a katana, making it a useful self-defense tool in case of an unexpected attack. The samurai tanto was designed primarily as a stabbing instrument, but the edge could be used to slash as well. In addition to samurai, women sometimes carried a small tanto called a kaiken in their obi for self-defense. We carry many collectible tantos with authentic detailing and construction. Our Japanese blades look great on display when they are not in use.

Japanese Wakizashis

One of the iconic blades of Japan, the traditional wakizashi is the shorter of the two oriental swords carried by samurai during the feudal period. The blade of the Japanese short sword extends about eighteen inches. The design of a functional wakizashi resembles a katana, featuring many of the same elaborate fittings. The Japanese wakizashi was normally laid on the floor inside any home a samurai visited, leaving the tanto as the only blade carried within the residence. The oriental wakizashi was used as a secondary blade when fighting and served as an instrument of ceremonial suicide. We carry many collectible wakizashi designed by top manufacturers from around the world. These Damascus and high carbon steel wakizashi are highly detailed, making them excellent display pieces when they are not in use.

Japanese Katanas

The katana is one of the iconic bladed weapons of Japan, typically wielded by warriors known as samurai. Traditional Japanese katana possess a single-edged, curved blade that took days or even weeks to construct. The forging process was considered a sacred art. Functional katana remain well-known for their strength and sharpness. These ornate Japanese swords often display elegant tsuba, or sword guards, and menuki ornaments bound within the wrapped cord of their handles. Most of our Japanese shirasaya and collectible katana come with a scabbard to prevent damage or dullness of the blade. We carry an amazing range of beautiful samurai katana crafted by some of the top manufacturers from around the world. These oriental swords are great for displaying in your home or martial arts training. Many of them also pair well with matching wakizashi that serve as companion blades.
