This nicely designed Japanese samurai Sword Stand is perfect for displaying
your shinken oer even your bokken Each support rail is lined for the protection
of the finish.
This double sword stand (katanakake) is black laquered and feature a padded
shelf for a tanto or maintenance Kit.
When not in use, a katana is placed on a katanakake( sword stand). The katanakake
serves to keep the sword ready for use. Normally, the katana is displayed edge
up with the tsuka arranged to the right. Storing the katana edge up helps keep
the sword from becoming dull from the wood inside the saya.
Displaying the tsuka to the right allowed the sword to easily be drawn. For
a peaceful display of one's weapons, the tsuka is arranged on the left. A tachi
is displayed edge down, as it is normally worn. The tachi also is displayed
on a vertical stand, with the edge turned away from the viewer.
