In Chinese, it is properly called a yanyuedao ("reclining moon blade"), the name under which it always appears in texts from the Song to Qing dynasties such as the Wujing Zongyao and Huangchao Liqi Tushi.

In addition there are often irregular serrations that lead the back edge of the blade to the spike. The blade is mounted atop a 1.5 m to 1.8 m (5–6 foot) long wooden or metal pole with a pointed metal counter weight used to balance the heavy blade and for striking on the opposite end.

The Tanto arrived in less than a week a was carefully packaged. As far as appearances go the item is exactly as pictured. The blue hue is brilliant and the blade is sharp. I will definitely be purchasing from True Katana again.

True katana has been a fabulous company for me personally. I can buy replicas of real samurai swords that are made by a real Smith, but not as real as the authentic older ones. I love collecting swords and these are great and true katana has a great team, and I received the swords and less than two weeks, if I was to buy sword, it would From true katana! Thank you for everything you’ve done!!!

The only complaint I have is that it was supposed to be razor sharp but it’s kinda dull. O and it was delivered to the wrong apartment luckily it was delivered to my brothers apartment. He lives in #2 and I live in #10 but it all worked out just fine. As far as the product goes it’s definitely worth the money very high quality and I’m happy with product and would definitely recommend it.

Very happy with the item. The design is beautiful. Arrived in perfect condition. Really impressed with how well crafted this sword is!

I was worried about problems with the sword being imported into Japan, which is very strict regarding it's laws on swords, but there were surprisingly no problems at all!

Thank you very much. I'm very proud to be the owner of such a beautiful looking sword.
