This ninjato sword is Unokubi-Zukuri style, which refers to the tapering of the tip of the blade around its point of impact. The geometry of this design was originally meant to create a lighter blade that still delivered the same force, power, and momentum of a larger sword. Even removing as little as 100 grams of weight can make a samurai that much faster and lighter on their feet.
In addition to the traditional design of the blade, we’ve also accented this weapon with classic Japanese themes. The blossoms and bamboo on the hilt — picked out in silver and gold plating — add delicate artistry to such a brutal weapon.
