The Japanese forged their swords to cut and slash, which would be useless against a 13th century and beyond knight.

What is the difference between a ninja and samurai?

The ninja is a spy and assassin and works through stealth, misdirection and blending into the surroundings. They killed with poison and other weapons. The samurai is a warrior who's primary weapon is the sword. They lived by the Code of Bushido and were honorable in their means and methods. They would kill themselves if they brought dishonor to their master, themselves or their family. If a ninja could overcome a samurai he would take his sword, simply because they are better. So ninja swords are better than samurai swords.
