He felt the weight of the wakizashi, it wasn’t particularly heavy, and it was small. He decided to be a little more animated with this one, since it seemed actually capable of taking the deflections Satori did to a certain extent. So he may as well do a little acrobatics. Or athletics. Either or. He dropped to a crouch once his initial attacks failed, swinging the blade for Satori’s leg, then darted along, trying to keep as low as possible so the larger man had to work for his blocks, or simply evade.
Of course, it was a little tiring for him too, but he could handle it for now. When Satori blocked an attack with his claws, Tin’d aim to draw the blade back and poke it through the gaps in his fingers, then jab it upright in an attempt to slash between them.
