How to display Japanese swords
Tachi has a special mounting rack (vertical tool holder), which is arranged with the tip of the knife up, the handle down, and the wing inward. If a horizontal tool holder is used, the handle is to the left, the tip is up, and the wing is down. .
When Katana is placed, the handle must face to the left to indicate non-threatening. Katana and Wakisashi (sometimes with tanto) are often placed on the same rack. Arrange from top to bottom in the order of length, with short ribs placed on the upper layer and the long knife placed on the lower layer. The layout method is always with the winger facing up. The handle must be placed to the left, with the blade facing upward, on the one hand, the left side is the front of the knife, on the other hand, it means that it is non-threatening. If the handle is turned to the right, it means that you can draw the knife with your right hand and hurt people at any time.
