The sword of the ninja, the ninjatō, is of lower quality than other Kara-Turan blades such as the katana. The ninjatō is short with a straight blade, making it ideal for the subterfuge of the ninja. The ninjatō is also more suited to fighting in closed places, sometimes giving the ninja an advantage over the longer blades that the samurai use.
