I don't think that's the tang. The break is above the hibaki. I think the tang is the metal that makes up the handle.

And unless the sword was actually made in Japan, katanas tend not to be very durable in actual combat.

You're right, the tang is the metal that runs down the middle of the handle. If the tang breaks the blade slides out of the handle and you're left holding a piece of wood with a tsukuba at the top.

Even well made katanas are less durable than a western sword, that's true. But they can take more of a beating than some sword shaped piece of base metal.

Thanks. Looking back on these old pages is great. I was trying to doo stuff that I often wasn't ready to capture. Haha
