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