Samurai Sword The structural strength

The sword has three elements, one is length, the other is flexibility, and the third is structural strength. Length is conducive to preemption and protection, flexibility is conducive to attack and strain, and structural strength determines the bending of the sword.

The lengthening method is to improve the body profile of the sword, and perhaps to cast the back and blade with different copper water containing tin, which can improve the strength of the sword and make the sword longer. Thus, the warring states had a bronze sword of 6 or 70 centimeters long, and in the peak of the western han dynasty, the record broke even more than 1.1 meters.
