From the Meji Restoration of 1868 onward, the government banned all use of the Japanese Katana. Following the defeat of Japan in World War 2, the government agreed to ban all manufacturing of the Katana. Even so, the Katana has failed to cease to exist, and still is a great symbol representing Japan. However, the Katana must overcome another obstacle standing in its path, the disappearance of Japanese Swordsmith’s. However, there is a single master with his last disciple deep in the secluded mountains of Japan, training to become part of the next generation of the nearly extinct Swordsmith’s.
