Details

The Practical Shinobi Ninja-To from Hanwei, whose construction patterns closely that of the Practical Katana, is a useful piece for those studying the Way of the Ninja. The blade is hand-forged in high-carbon steel and is differentially hardened using the traditional claying method. All of the fittings 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 black 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.
