Books have been used to learn and teach for centuries, and they are still a great way to learn new things. If you’re interested in a more comprehensive history of the katana than I wrote, or want to learn how to properly practice with one, reading a good book on the subject can do wonders.
The selection below contains some of the best-selling books on Amazon about the samurai sword, practices, fighting methods, forging techniques, martial arts, and anything else you might want to learn. I recommend you check each book, take a close look at their descriptions and see if they contain what you want. Then take a seat, put on some traditional japanese music on in the background and relax with your favorite book choice.
