This Musashi Miyamoto Wakizashi is the companion piece to the Musashi Miyamoto Katana (SH1016) with matching fittings and blade construction.
During the Muromachi period (1568-1603), the introduction of the pairing of the Katana (the curved sword) and Wakizashi was introduced. The Wakizashi, or the shorter companion blade to the Katana, was about 18 inches long. Only the warrior class - the Samurai - was allowed to wear the two swords, which remained a custom for the next several hundred years until abolished in the 19th century.
This Musashi Miyamoto Wakizashi is the companion piece to the Musashi Miyamoto Katana (SH1016) with matching fittings and blade construction. Supplied with a protective cloth bag and traditional maintenance kit.
