The japanese wakizashi being worn together with the katana was the official sign that the wearer was a samurai or a japanese swordsman. When worn together the pair of swords were called daishō, which translates literally as "big-little". The katana was the big or long sword and the wakizashi the "little" or companion sword. Wakizashi are not necessarily just a smaller version of the katana; they could be forged differently and have a different cross section.\nTsuka length : 9.75”\nBlade length : 21”\nOverall length : 32”
