CISH1071 -- Practical Shinobi Ninja-To (White Same)

The Practical Shinobi Ninja-to, whose construction patterns closely that of the Practical Katana, is a wonderful addition for those studying the Way of the Ninja. The blade is hand-forged from a high-carbon steel billet and is differentially hardened using a traditional claying method. All the fittings (koshirae) are finished in antiqued black iron. The ornate tsuba displays the kuji-kiri (energy-channeling hand positions) employed by the mystical ninja. The tsuka is wrapped in a synthetic ray skin (same) and the tsuka-ito is in durable synthetic black leather. The saya has flat black finish with demon-head bindings for the black Japanese cotton sageo and an intricate kojiri. A sword no practitioner of Ninjutsu should be without.

Made by Hanwei.

Pros: Overall Quality, Blade Material, Usable
Cons: Handle Material, None
This line or product of Ninja-To is a good representation of the original. Thanks to Paul Chen it was very if not near to impossible to get a Ninja-To. To get one made for an individual isn't very easy to do. So to make it short this is the best version to use. Plus actual swords are not meant for fancy movie style sword play just FYI you Block Move and Finish you opponent quickly and effectively.

For Cutting Soft Targets ONLY
First let's get this straight: Paul Chen Japanese Style swords are "practice" swords, NOT weapons. If you want a good edged weapon get a Ka Bar, or a Cold Steel Tanto, or even a Spyderco. This sword is very pretty, and it's even razor sharp. However, it is not going to be of much use to you in a sword fight. A five dollar machete would snap this thin sword in two, or at least take a huge piece out of the edge. The reason that these swords are sharpened is for one purpose: cutting rolled up tatami mats. If I had heeded these words my PC might still be in one piece. The way in which this sword does qualify as authentic, is that it's lightweight enough to be drawn and wielded in the traditional way. A Cold Steel Katana for instance, while a real weapon, is slightly too heavy for proper Iaido or Kendo. Also, for its intended cutting purpose (tamishigiri) its actually quite good. So overall I think it qualifies as a good product. But if you want something inexpensive that allows you to employ your Kendo skills for home or personal defense, Get a good hardwood Bokken. Seriously.
