Origin[]

Kenukigata Tachi refers to a sword that is made by a single piece of steel. The term of Kenukigata ("Hair Tweezers") derives from the fact that the center of the hilt is pierced and resembles the implement. The sword is also known as Efu no Tachi that were worn by the Efu ( imperial gaurds ). In the olden documentation the blade is known as "Yaken". These blades seem to have gradually evolved from a practical weapon to a symbolic object that is used in ceremonies.
