Rekey – Ma
The Katana was used since the late 14th century by the Japanese Samurei. The blade shape is similar to that of a saber, but the hilt is not bent against the cutting side like the hilt of a saber. But the biggest difference as opposed to the saber is the sword use. While the Katana is usually performed two-handed, the saber is rather conceived as a one-handed weapon.
