The straight katana, also known as a chokutō, is a remarkable single-edged sword characterized by its straight blade. This sword holds a significant historical significance as it was predominantly produced in Japan before the 9th century. The origins of its basic style and forging techniques can be traced back to ancient China during the illustrious Han Dynasty.
In addition to the straight katana, there is another sword with a straight blade called the ninjatō. Renowned as the weapon of choice for ninjas, the ninjatō typically measures around 60 cm or less in length. Its compact size and straight design allowed for stealthy and agile movements, perfectly suited for covert operations.

Katana Blade Types
Clay tempering gives a sword blade both flexibility and hardness, and clay tempered katana exhibits excellent durability that is inherited from high carbon steel
Folded steel blades, usually referred to as Damascus steel, are made by hammering the steel flat and folding it over repeatedly to create multiple layers of steel
Carbon steel is durable, extremely strong and shock resistant. It is one of the best blade materials, and can be easily forged, maintained and cleaned.
