 History of Gokaden

Japanese swords were researched after every battle and were renovated to improve its effects.  Furthermore, many talented blacksmiths started emerging during the late Heian to the Kamakura period and five producing districts-Yamato, Bizen, Yamashiro, Soushu, Mino-were established, each with their own style and technique in forging Japanese swords.  In the Katana industry, these five areas became generically known as the “Gokaden” during the Meiji period(1868-1911)
