A real ninja sword looks like a regular katana in the scabbard. When it is removed, the blade is considerably shorter. This is to clear the scabbard more quickly. The Hollywood rendition of the ninja sword is just that...Hollywood. The closest thing to real would be a sword by Cheness Swords. It is called the Bujinkan Oniyuri.
