Author Jon Boyd has worked with knives and blades for over 25 years as a knife and sword maker as well as flint knapper. His interest in the samurai sword and his knowledge of edged weapons is apparent in this informative book detailing many aspects of the sword. Approaching this subject from many angles, Boyd presents unique information that can not be found in any other book. Starting with a brief history of Japan and how the sword evolved, The Samurai Sword: Looking at Form, Fit & Function of a Masterpiece discusses the parts of the sword, including the design features and purpose of each component. He then describes the physics behind the sword, which covers the weight, balance, speed, force, drag, and the proper place to strike to achieve the optimum cut. Also included are details on how to choose, assemble, disassemble, clean, and store a sword. The Samurai Sword: Looking at Form, Fit & Function of a Masterpiece is a valuable resource for any sword enthusiast.
