A sakabato  is a fictional type of Japanese sword. On the normal katana, the outward curved side of the blade is sharpened, while the inward curved side of the blade is blunt. In contrast, the sakabato is made so that the cutting edge is on the side that curves inward. The sakabato is the main weapon of popular manga character Himura Kenshin in the manga Rurouni Kenshin, and as such is typically depicted as a 'pacifist' weapon by those willing to kill only as a last resort.

Although functional sakabato are currently being produced for purchase by collectors and fans. At Swords of X-sword  we strive to bring you top quality swords and accessories. No matter what style of sword you’re looking for, we can help you with every step of the buying process.
