One of our most advanced twin sword sets! The fusion of ninja and samurai sword styles make this a unique item.

A very firm and secure fit, this sword can be carried or worn without the hidden blade coming loose or making a sound. Pull out the end of the scabbard and you are holding a full tang Nodachi sword! Includes back strap.
Both blades feature 440 Stainless Steel, a blinding mirror polish, well defined tanto points, and measure 21 in. each. The handles are each 9 1/4 in. 40 1/2 in. overall length.
More about kodachi swords:
A kodachi, literally translating into "small or short tachi (sword)", is a Japanese sword that is too short to be considered a long sword but too long to be a dagger. Since this sword was shorter than two shaku (about two feet) in length, it did not exceed the blade length limits of non-samurai during the Edo period and could be worn by merchants.
A kodachi's length is similar to that of the wakizashi, and though the blades differ greatly in construction, the kodachi and the wakizashi are similar enough in size and technique that the terms are sometimes (mis)used interchangeably. While the kodachi was a set length, the wakizashi was forged to complement the height of its wielder or the length of the katana it was paired with, and thus varied. A double kodachi is featured by popular anime and manga where is has become the weapon of choice for Shinomori Aoshi.
