During the Middle Ages and as the use of steel for bladed weapons vastly improved, single edged swords became very popular throughout Asia and production of the Japanese tachi and the uchigatana, the predecessors to the more modern Samurai Swords began. The Japanese tachi was mainly used by cavalry with the cutting edge down and the curvature closer to the sword hilt and the uchigatana was worn edge up from the belt with the curvature closer the sword point. Both were generally longer than modern Samurai Swords, which made their first appearance during the Edo Period around the 15th and 16th centuries when Samurai or Bushi as they were known in Japan, found the need for a single bladed weapon to use in close quarter combat. Their demand for these high quality weapons produced Samurai Swords of unrivaled perfection as they had to be flexible enough to withstand direct impact without breaking, but had to also be hard enough to retain their sharp edge. Only the most experienced swordsmiths were able to develop the forging and heat treating methods which resulted in Samurai Swords that had both these properties.
