Very deadly, this one handed Japanese sword is quick to strike with and is a balanced combat sword with the exact same cutting, slashing and thrusting versatility as the Katana longsword, only shorter.
Major advantages of the short sword include a lower weight & size for transport and smuggling amongst clothing for surprise attacks, they come into their own unique power within enclosed spaces such as rooms, corridors, etc and strike with much faster speed than the standard long sword. Additionally, when paired with a second Wakizashi sword or Katana, the tandem pair becomes a formidable dual weapon fighting combination, which few combatants are able to counter.
Completed with beautiful and high quality components, this Samurai Wakizashi sword presents nicely for ornamental and decorative sword purposes while simultaneously performing as a fully functional combat sword.
