The best made blades are forged by the most skilled swordsmiths, the metal worked with such precision and care that the edge can cut through flesh so cleanly that a person might not even know they have been cut. You have commissioned a swordsmith to craft you such a Wakizashi. Before he is paid you want to be certain it is a properly made blade, and so you conduct a test. You produce a silken sheet, allowing it to descend lightly onto the Wakizashi's edge. The sheet is cut cleanly, not a thread mismatched. The blade is perfect.

DETAILS

Epic Armoury's Wakizashi is a latex-hybrid short sword favoured by both deadly ninja assassins and samurai alike. The sword is 60 cm from tip to pommel with a 40 cm straight, single-edged blade, hand painted to look like real metal. A small oval crossguard protects the 20 cm handle, cast and painted to look like fabric bound in menuki-style. Whether you are a samurai or ninja, this Wakizashi is our highest quality gear due to its impressive durability and detail. The blade is made from closed cell foam around a fibreglass core and finished with a strong latex coating, while the handle is a polyurethane foam cast that allows for greater detail and no maintenance. This hybrid model sword will make you confident in the safety and appeal of your weapon on the battlefield.

HISTORY
