Hakujin no Tachi

Hakujin no Tachi

The Hakujin no Tachi, or "Thin-Bladed Sword", is one of the last satsujinken swords forged by master swordsmith Arai Shakkū during the Bakumatsu.

It's blade was forged extremely long and thin to give it a considerable reach and whiplike flexibility.  The tip of the blade was weighted, giving the wielder full control of the sword with a flick of the wrist, making dodging its attacks by a close margin, such as with the Hiten Mitsurugi-ryū, very dangerous.

At some point the Hakujin no Tachi came into the possession of Juppongatana member and sword hunter Sawagejō Chō. Chō would wear the sword wrapped around a special waistbelt in order to prevent it from cutting him.

Chō used this sword during his fight with Himura Kenshin, and was able to land several hits on him, but was ultimately defeated once Kenshin obtained the principle forge of the sakabatō.
