Tachi Nioh
Reference : P04DH101
This 1095 Hamon blade is stored in this Tachi Nioh (太 刀). The Tachi was primarily used by armored samurai with one hand on horseback from the Heian period (794-1185) until the Muromachi period. The saber Tachi said was hanging from the left waist with the edge facing the ground so you could shoot it faster when facing enemies on the ground.
Due to its magnificent appearance, having a Tachi style sword mount has become a social status among the samurai.

The name Nioh comes from the legend that the Tachi blade forged by Kiyotsuna (the founder of the Nioh school) was able to save the statue of Nioh by cutting the chain that was connected to it when the temple of Nioh was on fire. Another theory was that the blacksmiths of Nioh lived in a village called Nioh no Sho (二 保 庄) and began to be called blacksmiths of Nioh.
