A samurai sword, also called nihonto is the traditional and historical bladed-weapon of medieval Japan. Japanese samurai swords are categorized according to their size, features and methods of manufacturing. The most famous Japanese samurai sword is the katana which is a single-edge and curved long sword. Wakizashi is similar to the katana but is a lot shorter. Both weapons were used by the Japanese Samurai warriors. Another sword from the nihonto family is the Tsurugi which is a double-edged long sword. Nodachi and Otachi are similar to katanas as they are single-edged weapons but they are much longer.

In Japanese word "wakizashi" means "side arm". The wakizashi is a traditional Japanese sword similar to the katana but it is a lot shorter. The wakizashi is on average about 20 inches in length. The wakizashi was usually worn together with the katana by the samurai warriors of medieval Japan. The wakizashi was simply a short companion sword to the main katana sword. The wakizashi was used in the 16th century and it originally was referred to as a side sword as it was worn on the side of the katana sword. In later years the term wakizashi referred to any shorts that where shorter than the main sword of the samurai warrior.
