The Shinobi-gatana is now for the first time being offered here with true to historical spec's. Though there are a vast many variations to the specs, Most of the specs are met within the size, measurements, etc offered in this hard to find Ninja-To. The Tsuka being offered on this hard to find piece is a perfect 14" length. Which makes for the perfect balance and control fitted to the short 23.5" blade for faster drawing up close and close quarters manipulation. Powders can be placed into the bottom of the Saya.
The 43.5" overall length when the blade is sheathed it appears to be a full length katana, this illusion, compounded with the light weight of the blade makes for lightening fast drawing and cutting. With the length/size of this Ninja-To it can be used either one or two handed.
