The designer Marc Newson has designed a series of 10 swords on the model of traditional katana used by the Japanese samurai. The Aikuchi limited editions are single-edged blade and a long handle to accommodate two hands. Their name refers to the Japanese term describing the installation of the sword, in which the handle and sheath meet without hand guard in between.
