-141- Tsujigiri (辻斬り)

Standard

Verb. From Japanese.

“To try out a new sword on someone”

Kill-Bill-References-In-Video-1

辻斬り was used with ninjas when they would first get a new sword. Its literal meaning is ‘crossroad killing.’

I doubt this is used much (if at all!) anymore, perhaps except for less literal purposes…
