Cheness Oniyuri Iaito

(Ref: C137)

The "Oniyuri" (Tiger Lily) katana is a custom made 9260 spring steel blade specialized for practice by specific ryu-ha of the Bujinkan Federation. The blade body is a 9260 silicon alloy carbon spring steel. Blade is a unique 23" and handle is an even rarer 14" in length. It is a shinobi (ninja) sword with the apparence of a katana. The forms of this blade follows the functions that it serves. The 14" tsuka (13" not counting fuchi/kashira) with an extensive nakago is used for restraining techniques in some specific ryu-ha of Bujinkan. The extensive nakago (tang) within the long handle also makes the grip portion into a reasonably feasible section for blocking.

This is essentially a shinobi (ninja) katana, disguised to have the same appearance as a standard katana (as true ninja swords tends to be -- since it is never in anyones practice to go out of their way to reveal their own identify). (The straight bladed ninja sword is more of a Hollywood rendition of the shinobi katana).

This no-bo hi version blade has a more forward center of gravity heavier weight. These type of blades have more lateral strength and are easier for tameshigiri from the weight and the reduced drag. Whereas the varient with bo-hi is better for kata practice, the no-bo hi varient is better for cutting practices.
