Nokogiribiki was the Rokugani term for decapitation, reserved for the worst criminals. Punishment by sawing during a battle was considered extremely harsh and controversial. An alternate punishment also known as Nokogiribiki was to be buried in the ground, with only his head remaining free, and a bamboo saw placed nearby. The offending criminal could kill himself using the saw on his neck. [1]
