Historic Background

A dōtanuki is a thick, long handled sword resembling a katana. The dōtanuki was made to slice through a target with just a single cut and was boasted as the only sword capable of slicing in half a samurai wearing full armour.

The Dotanuki was the name of a Shinto period smithing school in the Higo Province.

It was most popular during the Azuchi-Momoyama (1568-1600) period.

Fictional References

The Dotanuki is the main weapon used by Ogami Ittō in the story by Kazuo Koike Lone Wolf and Cub.
