    The Samurai Sword (Japanese Tradition Series)
    This pack contains over 15 highly detailed and unique historical samurai weapons, including multiple variants of the standard Katana sword. Each bladed weapon Is also fitted with it's own Saya / Scabbard.

    Each model contains 2 Automatic LOD levels (high-poly, lo-poly), and a custom Unity 5 PBR shader to maximize the surface properties of each material. Most materials are interchangeable and can be used on other models for maximum variability. Each weapon is setup with collider primitives and appropriate rigidbody by default, for immediate use with Unity's physics system.

    Try the Demo!

    NOTE: For some unknown reason all my websites went offline this morning. :( Tech Support is currently looking into the issue. To anyone who is interested in checking out the demos of my assets everything should hopefully be back up soon!

    EDIT: Nevermind, everything is working again! :)

    I'd like to give a big thanks to everyone who's purchased so far! Once you guys have had enough time to evaluate the sword pack I would much appreciate positive ratings and reviews, they really help a lot! :)

    The Twitter promotion is over. As it turns out Twitter is (mostly) just filled with people that I highly suspect to not be real people. In any case, I have one free voucher left. The first person to respond here gets it. :)

    I am making a samurai game with customisable swords that the player can asseble from parts.

    Have you considered adding an option or an entirely different asset with modular pieces?
    • Blade
    • Guard
    • Hilt

    @SureSight Hmm... I have the modular parts available, as I modeled them all separately to begin with. I hadn't really considered adding them to the package though, thinking most people wouldn't need them as separate objects (and I did some small optimizations by fusing them together). But it seems like a good idea to include modular pieces... I'll add this and post an update later this week. :)

    @SureSight Sorry about the delay. I've submitted the update to the asset store, but I hear they are pretty back-logged so I'm not sure how long it will take them to approve the new version.

    Alternatively I have the new update available on my website too... anyone who purchases on the Asset Store can register and get download access to the files on my site as well, and there's no approval delay. Registration is available here: http://tanukidigital.com/jts_thesamuraisword/index.php?register=1

    Hello All,

    I'm happy to announce that 'The Samurai Sword' version 1.2 is now ready for download...

    Download Here: http://www.tanukidigital.com/download

    This update includes a new Sword Addition: Tachi!




    The Tachi was the main personal weapon for battle and it’s origins can be traced back to the very beginnings of the Samurai class. The blade was longer in length than later swords with a tapered blade and more severe curvature, making it lighter and easier to wield from horseback. The Tachi was worn on a band hanging from the hip with the curved edge facing downward.

    This release includes a custom model that reflects the particular differences in the Tachi sword, as well as a new custom material and textures specific for this sword.

    As always, let me know if you have problems/questions/feedback etc, either by email or on the forums!

    All the best,
    Justin Kellis
