A sword is a long, bladed weapon used for combat. While most swords as are traditional Japanese katana or ninjatō, swords used by many tend to bear little resemblance to real-life weapons, as is the case with the Seven Swordsmen of the Hidden Mist's swords. Other swords that have been introduced in the series that have mystical or special powers include the Grass Long Sword and the Totsuka Sword as wielded by Itachi Uchiha's Susanoo.
Most shinobi appear to have a preference towards long and wide blades, while some ninja like Tenten use swords mainly for throwing them long-range. Of note are the samurai's of the Land of Iron who are nearly all seen with swords, and the shinobi of the Land of Lightning which boasts a visible majority carrying them.
