Examine the thousand year old art and science behind the Japanese warrior’s signature weapon.

English archers had their longbows, Old West sheriffs had their six-guns, but samurai warriors had the most fearsome weapon of all: the razor-sharp, unsurpassed technology of the katana, or samurai sword. This program probes the centuries-old secrets that went into forging what many consider the perfect blade. Without access to the insights of modern science, Japanese craftsmen a millennium ago worked out an exacting method that is still followed by a devoted few and that produces the Stradivarius of swords.
