i have been wondering what swords (if any) the japanese made around 1000-1300. i know that the katana was created later in their history and was wondering what they had used before. i looked online and couldn't really find anything usefull.
Have you checked Richard Stein's nihonto site? It has plenty of information about the evolution of Japanese blades and can point you to the relevant books if you want to study the thing in more detail.
