Hige-kiri and Hiza-maru Description

"Hige-kiri (Beard cutter) and Hiza-maru (the Hobbler) are a legendary pair of long and short blades said to have been owned by the Genji clan. The smith is unknown, but they are believed to have been forged at Minamoto-no-Mitsunaka's order in the Heian Era. The larger blade got its name for being so exquisitely honed it can separate an enemy from his beard before taking off his head; the smaller, for its ability to sever legs with a single well-placed strike. Hiza-maru is said to have been used by Minamoto-no-Yorimitsu on his mission to slay the Shuten Doji demon in the hills outside of Kyoto, where he used it against a giand spider called the Tsuchi-gumo. In later centuries these swords were kept as family treasures by powerful warlords such as the Kai-Takeda clan, but their true provenance is difficult to ascertain."
