Ninja II Bastard (SWNIX82fKHF1)
This sword is a faithful replica of the swords used by most of the Ninja clans in ancient Japan. It simplicity is elegant and provides for ease of use - which is why it was such a popular design for so many hundreds of years.
While samurais had great ornate katanas, full of stories and renowned by all, it was absolutely illogical that ninjas use the same swords. However, as they wished to use the high quality of these blades, they had forged similar weapons, but simpler in design. This way, no one would recognize them in the city, and letting go of them in a risky escape would not bring dishonor on their family. These weapons were so efficient that they did not change for hundreds of years. Still today, some keep as treasures on of these swords, symbol of a lost era.
The Ninja II is the natural evolution of the first generation of this sword. Always made of safe Calimacil foam, this weapon will give you years of good use thanks to its unrivaled durability. The guard of the sword is now steel-coloured and the handle is brown. The blade stays silver-coloured to make a unique and incredibly realistic weapon.
Characters inspired by asian culture will appreciate this sword’s unique design. Less detailed than the katana, it is perfect for anyone who is not noble-born, such as ninjas and spies, but also simple soldiers and mythical creatures of the far East.
