[Anime] Real Life Rurouni Kenshin Sakabato Found in Japan

Turns out that the famous reverse bladed sword (literally sakabato) that was used by Himura Kenshin in the series is actually a real thing. Kenshin used this type of sword so that he could still fight and defend, but not kill his enemies with a lethal blow.

Up until now it was considered just something that was made up by manga artist, Nobuhiro Watsuki, and with no basis in the real world at all.
