Now THIS is a REAL Ninja Sword: originally custom designed for the Bujinkan Federation and now made available to members of the general public...

Unlike in Hollywood, where the Ninja walk around in broad daylight doing back flips dressed in their 'black pajamas', the real Japanese Shinobi would be undistinguishable from every other person around them - until it came time to act that is! In this time honored tradition, the Oniyuri Katana makes the perfect Shinobi weapon: on the outside, it looks like any other ordinary Katana - but the shorter blade gives it an unfair advantage on the draw, and if need be can be followed by a rapid succession of swift, close in and unfamiliar attacks until the opponent is quickly overwhelmed and neutralized before they have a chance to work out what is going on.

Fast handling (especially the 'bo-hi' fullered option), frighteningly sharp and forged from extra tough 9260 Spring Steel that Cheness has become famous for, the Oniyuri makes an eminently durable and practical cutter and is unique to Cheness Cutlery.

WARNING: Due to the sharpness of the blade, it is strongly NOT recommended to practice quick drawing the blade unless under the supervision of an appropriately qualified Ninjutsu instructor.

Cheness "Oniyuri" 9260 Bujinkan Shinobigatana
made for adaptive handling
This sword feels very solid in hand... As if it were part of your arm with a lot of presence felt in the bicept just behind the elbow it is this feeling that allows you to switch grips and compete with a standard katana.......your wrist and forearm are allowed fine control ..with heavy practice it will build powerful upper arms connected through the elbow to the upper shoulders shoulder blades and latts you feel the potential cutting power through every swing like a well balanced light battle axe... I have no complaints about its will preform to high expectations

great black sword box left something to be desired. It was dented in travel and I wouldn't want to store it in a moving truck near anything heavy.

My only real issue is the fittings...I was expecting a matainace kit but it appears that is no longer offered with purchase...the habaki was ground off on one side to low where the sword blades spine rests in the saya and the blade corner protrudes out and scraps the mouth inside the scabbard taking material every time the sword is removed until it has nothing left to make contact with.

COSMETICS: this is not a decorated blade dull black cotton ito...let may i say though it was impressively solid I don't feel it would of loosened i have taken it off to thin the tsuka for a tighter grip and it was a top of the line profetional wrap....difficult to move from the place it was in...the blade is has a dull polish ...I prefer a slight mirror polish..I will stone sharpen the edge a lil finer it cuts but it can be made to cut finer...very good shape I love the kissaki and the point on the tip....I may change the tsuba for something smaller and heavyer ...I would like to see how it handles with a low profile tanto inspired tsuba...i prefer the look but I bought this for function

OVERALL: I would call these a supreme functional blade..versatile for indoor and outdoor use...handles as well as a full sized katana as advertized...i have a 30 inch blade that feels slightly off balace compared to the low grip on the oniyuri...leaves a bit of desire for cosmetics...and the habaki is a bit aggrivating but I don't feel cheated out of my money and I love this sword ..I would reccomend it to anyone looking to build themself around there sword and learn to use a unuiqe weapons and hone control fluid adaptation speed and power
