CISH2416: Raptor Katana, Nanbokucho Zukuri
CAS Iberia
The Nanbochuko period in Japanese history (the later part of the 14th. century) encompassed sixty years of internal conflict in Japan, which spawned a demand for more and bigger sword blades than ever produced previously. Blades became longer and wider, sometimes to extremes (the Odachi had its genesis in this period). Named for this period, the Nanbokucho Katana is impressively sized. With a blade length of 30", a long kissaki and a weight of just under 3 lbs. it is designed for heavy targets. It is, however, surprisingly agile and nimble enough to master double cuts.

A beast of a sword
- I have never owned a sword before this sword.- I was told to get a sword that would protect my family.- I looked around for 3 full days online until I found something that was simple, effective, under $500 and that would protect my family.- When it arrived it was packaged well and sharp. The point of the sword feels like it would penetrate a granite wall. 5160 steel and heavy. Didn't sound like a heavy sword until it came in the mail and I held it. Balanced enough though.- I have not cut tatami mats with it yet, but plan to. - I wish it was a pound lighter, but I'm sure when adrenaline kicks in I won't notice the weight. I would hate to get cut by this thing, the weight of it would cut through a car.- Would I purchase a second of the same, no, I would search for a lighter sword by a pound. If weight doesn't matter to you then, I would say it would serve you well.
