@boring7 Actually, a lot of what's "known" about Bushido actually comes from the late 19th and early 20th Centuries when Imperial Japan was in the midst of wave of nationalism and heavily romanticized the Sengoku period. While samurai typically dueled with swords, in battle the katana was more of a rank insignia and fighting was done primarily with bows or spears.
