The wakizashi, or companion sword, is extremely important to samurai. It is worn at all times, even indoors, and is near the samurai when he sleeps at night. As finely made as the katana, the wakizashi, a shorter sword with a length between twelve and twenty-four inches, is a dangerous weapon in the hands of a skilled user.
