The secrets of the covert ninja or shinobi have been steeped in myth and legend since Feudal Japan. Their functions included espionage, sabotage and assassination. The tools of their trade were nunchucks, blowguns, throwing knives and the most prized...the Ninja Sword. The Dragon Ninja Sword depicts all the imagery of the legendary warrior in an economical alternative for learning techniques and light cutting. This ninjato is 41" overall with a polished 28" high carbon blade. The 7mm thick blade also features etchings of both the dragon and a spear. The handle is black cotton wrap over real ray skin with zinc alloy dragon tsuba. Includes black lacquer scabbard.
