"The ninjato is typically depicted as being a short sword with a straight blade and a square guard. The typical description of the ninjatō could be due to ninja having to forge their own blades from slabs of steel or iron with the cutting edge being ground on a stone, with straight blades being easier to form than the much more refined curved traditional katana. For convenience, the ninja would choose a blade that was shorter and straighter than usual."
