Functional Oriental Zatoichis

A hidden weapon was just as useful to a samurai or a ronin was it was to ninja, and for a real warrior and swordsman, nothing beats a shikomizue. In Japanese, shikomizue means prepared cane, and more literally, is a sword-stick. However, it is better known as a Zatoichi, which is the name of a fictional, blind samurai who used the sword-cane to devastating effect in battle. And at Dark Knight Armoury, we offer a few iterations of this legendary weapon, so that you might feel the deadly grace and power of the Zatoichi shikomizue in your own hands. What sets a shikomizue apart from the traditional katana, and even from the shirasaya, which appears similar, is that a shikomizue is straight, where-as the katana and the shirasaya both have the iconic curve of the Japanese sword. A stick-sword is perfectly functional as a walking stick and cane, and in a moments notice, it can be drawn to be used as a lethal weapon, as well, just as Zatoichi often did in the films. Designed with full functionality in mind, these sword-sticks serve well as battle-ready weapons, and are also a great choice for solo training and kenjutsu practice in your spare time. They also serve well as cutting swords, serving to demonstrate that even a straight sword can cut as lethally as the legendary katana can. Plus, the functional Oriental Zatoichi swords offered here at Dark Knight Armoury make for a truly unique addition to your collection and to your personal arms, ensuring that when you do wield it, others will certainly take notice of this legendary weapon.
