We are proud to offer our RitterSteel® Odachi Giant Samurai sword, a handmade “work of art” for those who seek a full tang functional great sword in traditional Japanese styling.
Our RitterSteel® Odachi sword comprises the esthetic great looks and functionality befitting the modern Samurai warrior. Great swords were popular in feudal Japan’s Edo period with the Odachi, being the favored sword of the Samurai feudal class for it’s great size and beauty. At times the Odachi may be incorrectly referred to as an nodachi sword or no-dachi (which refers to a “bare bones” field sword with simplified workmanship, materials and lack of detailing). Let there be no mistake, our Ritter Steel® Odachi sword is the real deal… comprising the materials, esthetic beauty and functionality befitting the legacy of the Samurai! Each RitterSteel® Odachi Giant Samurai sword sports a high carbon steel blade which is hand pounded and forged over hot coals, using many of the original techniques passed down through the generations of ancient sword smiths. A traditional solid copper habaki is then hand fitted to each 40" long, 1-3/8" wide fully functional blade. The 4” diameter tsuba and end cap are individually hand cast in blackened steel for functionality and ease of upkeep. The end cap is then adorned by beautiful red tassels which add to the overall beauty of this sword! The workmanship put into each sword attests to each sword being an authentically functional original work of art! The overall length of the RitterSteel® Odachi Giant Samurai is an incredible 67" long and comes complete with its own scabbard hand made from wood, and covered in brown leather as shown. It pairs nicely with other models from our RitterSteel® Brown Braided Leather Collection series of swords and is a must for every all Samurai collection. While others have tried to imitate, none can duplicate our quality swords, so insist only on the Original RitterSteel® Odachi Giant Samurai sword if you want the very best! Item #2042
