WAKIZASHI (short blade)
Weight: ~1.5 kg
Rank(s): 1st row
This is a short sword, similar in design and construction
to the katana. Like the katana, the wakizashi may be named for
some past deed or event. It holds almost as important place in
the samurai's honor as his katana. Those rules and guidelines
concerning the katana and its care also apply to the wakizashi
when it is part of a matched set.
The wakizashi and the katana are normally worn as a pair
by samurai characters. This pair is known as 'daisho', or
"long and short".
In many lands, the two-weapon combination is a sign of
samurai status. Anyone other than a samurai who wears the long
and short swords together is subject to arrest or immediate
Some skill(s) usable with the weapon:
Bladed fury, battlecry, bloodlust, cardiac stimulation,
damn armament, lure, pierce, short blades, stab and vampiric blow.
Knife, dagger, main gauche, dirk, rapier, poker, foil, sai,
short sword, scimitar, cutlass, and horn.
