Killing A Passerby In Order To Test A New Sword

On the WaniKani Forums some people were posting about words they didn't expect existed. I thought this one was really good.


Definition: killing a passerby in order to test a new sword [jisho]

Break up the kanji and you get:

辻: crossing, crossroad

斬: beheading, kill, murder

I feel the most sorry for people who tested out their swords only to find that the quality was no good.
