Eligible for FREE Shipping
Orders Over $99. Details.

Zatoichi is Seemingly only a Harmless blind masseur who wanders around the country making his living by gambling; however, He is also highly Skilled in Swordsmanship, Specifically Iaijutsu. He keeps his sword concealed within his cane. Cane swords, or shikomizue, were generally straight, lower-quality blades, which could not compare with regular katanas - However as revealed in Zatoichi's Cane Sword, his weapon is nearly superior to a katana and was created by a master sword smith just before his prime.

A recurring theme of both the films and television series episodes concerns Zatoichi protecting the innocent from oppressive warring Yakuza gangs and general injustice. Zatoichi's now-trademark inverted hold on his cane sword grip combined with his abilities using such a stance, his sometimes inexplicably keen ears and nose, and personal perception renders him a capable surprise attacker.
