One of the iconic blades of Japan, the traditional wakizashi is the shorter of the two oriental swords carried by samurai during the feudal period. The blade of the Japanese short sword extends about eighteen inches. The design of a functional wakizashi resembles a katana, featuring many of the same elaborate fittings. The Japanese wakizashi was normally laid on the floor inside any home a samurai visited, leaving the tanto as the only blade carried within the residence. The oriental wakizashi was used as a secondary blade when fighting and served as an instrument of ceremonial suicide. We carry many collectible wakizashi designed by top manufacturers from around the world. These Damascus and high carbon steel wakizashi are highly detailed, making them excellent display pieces when they are not in use.
