Japanese Wakizashis

One of the renowned blades of Japan, the Japanese wakizashi is the shorter of the two Asian swords carried by samurai during the feudal period. The blade of the Asian short sword extends about eighteen inches. The design of a battle-ready wakizashi resembles a katana, featuring many of the same elaborate fittings. The traditional 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 samurai wakizashi was used as a secondary blade when fighting and served as an tool of ceremonial suicide. Medieval Collectables carries many collectible swords designed by top manufacturers from around the world. These high carbon and Damascus steel wakizashi are highly detailed, making them excellent display pieces when they are not in use.
