About Sakabato (逆刃刀, reverse-edged sword)
It is the most important sword in the Rurouni Kenshin anime/manga series. Forged by master sword-smith Arai Shakkū, it is a reverse-edged sword with its cutting surface on the inside of the curve. Kenshin uses it because of the sword's overall strength and durability.
There's another reason Ken shin likes this sword: the cutting edge of the sword is at the back rather than the front so it's useful to defeat enemies without killing them. On a normal katana, the outward curved side of the blade is sharpened and the inward side is blunt.
Kenshin is basically a pacifist. He is naturally a gentle and a good person. He even disappears from this world vowing never to kill again when the final battle is over. This explains why this Kenshin prefers this reverse-edged sword.
