Hi, I signed up in this forum because I had a doubt and wanted to know if someone could help me clear it out. I would like to know how to write the word Katana, or the word Sword. Wikipedia tells me that Katana is 刀. Does that mean that 刀 represents the whole word of Katana, or is that how you say Sword in general? How does this work? I would appreciate the help, cheers.
