i don't know if this is counted as a bladed weapon, coz it's not your usual sword.. but it has blades, right?

Kaoru Koganei from Flame of Recca
>> He wields the Kōgan Anki, a puzzle-like weapon that has five different forms. In the manga, the weapon also has a mysterious sixth form: 'Mu' (Nothing).

That is similar to a kusarigama, but it is not something to be used as carelessly and inefficiently as the boy in that anime does. With a kusarigama, the sickle part is NEVER thrown. It is always held in the hand while the weighted end is twirled and thrown to snare an opponent or opponent's weapon, then you come in with the sickle and cut at their throat, clavicle, or anywhere else beneficial to combat.

That would not be so easily wielded in real combat. Perhaps you should reread the initial post.

A weapon is a device designed for war. Scythes were designed as a farming implement.

As for this so called "Moon Scythe" which is actually a sickle called a Kama, they were also farm weapons.

Furthermore the Shinobi did not use them nor did they participate in war as they were spies and nothing more.

There is a weapon called a kusarigama which was developed into a weapon. It was a sickle attached to a 2-4 foot chain.

However, the sickle part was NEVER thrown. It was always in the hand, the chain was twirled and throne to tangle an opponent or opponent's weapon.

I would definately opt for katana but i like the wakazashi aswell. they compliment each other in nitoryu.....but i also wouldnt mind using in RL probaly a Daito or odachi there not very practical in a bout, but its just the raw energy u get from slicing with them. I also love using bokken:) ever since i was small and watched kenshin and the little kid in yellow. cant remember his name...he always used bokken and it just made me practise with bokken i guess xD

A Daito is just a generic word for a long sword like a Katana. So I don't see why a Katana would be usefull and a daito wouldn't.

The little kid used a shinai, not a bokken.
Shinai is split bamboo. Bokken is hard wood.

Hey no worries man, these things can be confusing. Shinai and Bokken are often mistaken for eachother.
I wish you many opportunities to learn and grow.

hmmm..... I would say my favorite bladed weapon would have to be two short swords or daggers cause their lightweight, supporting speed and stealth....
