This wakizashi is the companion sword to the Imperial Forge Toumoku Katana. Traditional Japanese law forbade any but the samurai from wearing both blades, for it was a mark of their station. A samurai would often relinquish his long katana upon entering a home, but would keep the shorter wakizashi on his person - an altogether more useful blade within the confines indoors. A wakizashi was often a blade of choice for committing the ritual suicide of Seppuku and was often used to remove the heads of defeated enemies to display to their lord.

Crafted by Imperial Forge this wakizashi is named ‘’Toumoku’’ meaning ‘’Leader’’. The blade is made from 1050 Spring Steel and has been heat tempered to a blade hardness of 40 HRC and the edge has been further hardened to 60 HRC. A long Bo-Hi groove reduces weight and gives the sword a louder characteristic ’Tachikaze’’ whistle as the blade ‘’slices the air’’.

The tsuba and koshirae are of iron, and the wooden tsuka grip has been covered with blackened rayskin. Deep purple tsuka-ito wrapping covers the rayskin ‘’same’’ and two menuki jewels are wrapped within the ito. The fittings are held in place with bamboo mekugi, whose removal allows for maintenance disassembly or customization. The habaki is of brass and the seppa are of copper. The wooden saya scabbard is finished with black lacquer and has a matching dark purple sageo cord. The sword comes with a navy blue sword bag.
