Martial Arts Swords: Are you looking for a set to be a conversation piece in your home or office? Need to draw on the strength of the samurai? We should be able to help with either.
With the Japanese sword sets, the katana is typically paired with a wakizashi or tanto, a similarly made but shorter sword. Both of these have been worn by members of the warrior class throughout history. A tanto, an even smaller similarly shaped blade, may also be added to the ensemble to represent a heightened status.
The katana and wakizashi together are called the daish, which literally means big-small, and represented the social power and personal honor of the samurai (Bushido). The long blade of the katana was used by the samurai for open combat, while the shorter blade was considered a side arm, more suited for stabbing, close combat (such as indoors), and seppuku, a form of ritual suicide.
