I believe he means fighting style, not sword design.

I don't believe there's any kind of established style for it due to the fact that it wasn't used the way the Kensei use it. It was primarily used to fight from horseback, and due to it's weight and size was considered unwieldy on the ground. Later turned into an ornamental sword rather than a practical one. So whatever they use is probably completely fictional.
