Random related question:

Can the term 'daishō' be used for a matched triplicate? I.e. With Tanto - or is it only used for Kat + Wak?

If not, is their another term for a matched triplicate set?

Daisho

As already mentioned, a daisho (lit. "big/small") is the katana/wakizashi or katana/tanto pair that was one of the outer attributes of the samurai. Most daisho were mounted en suite, but actually any combination of a short and a long sword is considered a daisho; and it is either a wakizashi or a tanto together with the katana, never both.

Hope that helps Mel'.
