The ninjato sword was the favored weapon carried by Shinobi (ninja) in feudal Japan. In contrast to the curved katana, this style of blade is characterized as being a short sword with a completely straight blade. In the legends, ninjatos were used by ninja as an additional stealth weapon. It has been speculated that the scabbards were longer than the blade to hide other objects for use in combat. This style of swords has become one of the defining features of a ninja in popular media and culture. Explore real ninja swords in our online store to find the perfect one for your collection.
