Net als zijn langere tegenhanger, de Katana, is deze Wakizashi gericht op praktisch gebruik en bescheidenheid. De Fuchi en Kashira zijn onversierd, alleen de Kashira heeft een kleine versiering op het punt waar de Tsuka-Ito(katoenen omwikkeling rond de Tsuka(het gevest) in de Kashira loopt. De enige versiering, die ook weer praktisch is, zijn de Menuki(ornamenten tussen de Tsuka-Ito). Ook deze Wakizashi is iets zwaarder.
