The Ninjato (忍者刀 ), Ninja-ken (忍者剣), Shinobigatana (忍刀)
“The ninja sword was shorter than a normal one, as long as two feet. Its cord is very long, for it is used for climbing up a wall… It is said that the ninja never used a fine sword with the name of the swordsmith. When assassinating the enemy, the ninja usually used a newly made thick sword to thrust. He never pulled it out after thrusting and killing the enemy, leaving it there so that he might not revive. He did not want to be traced by the name of the swordsmith”
