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.
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.
