Kamakura Tachi John Lee
John Lee Kamakura Tachi

The Kamakura period (1185-1333) was a crucial epoch in the
History of Japan. It is characterized by the first military government (Shôgunat), which was founded in 1192 by Minamoto no Yoritomo. The name derives from the former seat of the government, which was located in Kamakura (about 50 km southwest of Tokyo). Along with armor (Yoroi) and combat knife (Tanto), the tachi was mostly worn on the battlefield. The John Lee Kamakura Tachi is based on a deliberately simple look and differs from replicas of later eras, which were usually richly decorated and served only ceremonial purposes.

- Shinogi-Zukuri-style blade without flute (Bo-Hi), hand-forged from 1045 carbon steel.
- The blade is sharpened with integrated Hamon line for a very authentic look.
- Handle winding of black silk in the classic hineri-maki style, underlaid with real ray skin.
- Black, glossy lacquered sheath (Kuroro style) made of wood.
- Detailed Wehrgehänge from leather inlays and high-quality, 2-colored cotton Sageo.
- With long fishing rod, which is fixed in the handle with 2 bamboo sticks (Mekugi). The sword is thus fully dismountable.

- Blade clamp (Habaki) and washers (Seppa) are made of brass.
- All ornaments (Tsuba, Fuchi, Menuki, Kashira) are made of metal.
