Wakizashi 
is worn at home as well (optional), but
katana
is not to be worn athome except in times of war.You must store the swords (
katana, wakizashi,
tanto) at the best place in thehouse. This in Japan means the best room for receiving guests, named
tokonoma
. At the place is also kept
yoroi 
(armory). All of them must be cleanedand kept from dust everyday. You must clean the blades yourself to keep awayrust. This is not a job for servants. The idea is to keep the close relationbetween you and the weapons, which are a reminder of your duties andobligations.
Wakizashi 
is a samurai 'name card'. It should be left on the body of the man youkill in a vendetta/vengeance, as your responsibility of the death as well as thereason why.You must never let anyone else to touch your swords at any time, except for servants who handle storage of swords of guests (
katana
only) when you visitanother samurai's house. Upon a visit, you must leave your long sword/
katana
with the servant of your host, unless your intention is unfriendly.If you sit alone in someone else's house, you may put your sword next to you inany fashion on the floor.
