About This Item

Weapons, particularly bladed weapons such as swords, are enjoying a renaissance of interest from collectors to the layperson. The samurai, a glorified figure in Japan and the West, employed a variety of weapons over their long history, not the least of which was the sword. Samurai Weapons provides a historical look at samurai and details how and why their weapons included not only the sword of popular lore, but also a variety of others, including concealed weapons, improvised fighting tools, fans, truncheons and polearms. The author succinctly describes the society of Japan, how and why the samurai class arose, and the place that samurai held in that society through the centuries, focusing in particular on the various weaponry they used, how they were used and why. In addition, Samurai Weapons highlights the influence these weapons and fighting styles had on many different schools of Japanese martial arts.
