Tachi(太刀)-Great sword

The Tachi (太刀) literally means "great sword" was a type of traditionally made Japanese sword(nihonto)  worn by the samurai class of feudal Japan, that was developed before the creation of the katana. Tachi are commonly associated with early Koto era swords and were worn by higher ranking samurai and daimyo. The tachi is worn edge down with the saya suspended from a sword belt. Tachi of various styles have been made from the earliest Koto eras through the modern period.
