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. 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.
