A Wakizashi is a very significant sword for both the sword maker and the sword collector as it carries a remarkable legacy in it. In feudal Japan, only the official samurai can wear the Wakizashi and Katana together. And this has been used since the early 15th or 16th century as a backup sword and it is a privilege for the samurai warriors to wear this on their left side. Wazikashi is with the samurai since the beginning: when he sleeps, it is under his pillow and even until the day he dies, making it a symbol of honor and discipline. Wakizashi has also been used to perform seppuku. (Ritual suicide)
This Wakizashi sword weighs 1 KG, has a blade length of 51 centimeters, a handle length of 22 centimeters and a width of 3.2 centimeters.
