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 are dead. You have commissioned a swordsmith to craft you 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.DETAILSEpic Armoury’s Katana is a high-quality latex longsword favoured by both deadly ninja assassins and samurai alike. The 85 cm straight blade is single-edged, handpainted to look like real metal. A small oval crossguard protects the 20 cm handle, which is bound in menuki-style using durable leather.Made from durable closed cell foam around a fibreglass core and finished with a strong latex coating, you can feel confident that your LARP weapon will provide the safety and appeal you want when crafting your Asian-inspired kit.HISTORYTraditionally used by samurai of feudal JapanDesigned to be drawn from the sheath quickly to accommodate combat that required fast response timesPaired with a tanto or wakizashi by samurai to display social power and personal honor
