I’ve read that the Samurai would carry these swords through his sash. This leads me to believe that that would allow for slippage and movement of the swords during movement of the body. Modern swords come with a leather strap attached to the scabbard, now then how are these suppose to attach to the body? I could only assume they go over the shoulder but with that that would make drawing the sword more troublesome than wearing them at ones waist. Please help with me research, thank you.
