A tachi is a type of Japanese sword that predates the katana. It is characterized by its longer length, curved blade, and the fact that it is worn with the cutting edge facing downward. Tachi was commonly worn by the samurai class in feudal Japan and was used for both battle and ceremonial purposes.
