Functional Wakizashis

The Japanese Wakizashi is the shorter of the two swords carried by the Japanese Samurai warrior. The blade of the Japanese Wakizashi is about eighteen inches, which is like the long sword but the fittings are often more elaborate. The Japanese wakizashi was normal carried and was taken into the house and laid on the floor by the owner, while the Japanese katana was left at the entrance of the home. The Japanese wakizashi was used as a supplementary arm in fighting and also for ceremonial suicide. We have listed all the fully functional Japanese wakizashis that we carry from top manufacturers around the world. These Wakizashi manufacturers include Cold Steel, CAS Iberia and Hanwei. Our Japanese katanas are highly detailed and constructed of the finest steel giving them strength and durability.
