If it's a replica of a Japanese sword, they're called boken (Which literally means "wood sword").
As to your fanfic: I can't speak for other Japanese sword arts, but kenjutsu practice is with wooden swords, for safety. As for actual dueling, Miyamoto Musashi (1584?- 1645) actually did this long, long ago.

Oh boy. Here we go again. The reverse blade sword was not a historical object. It was invented by the creator of the Rurouni Kenshin Manga/Anime series. They never existed. The historical weapon of choice for non-lethal duels was a bokuto(alternate name for bokken).

Please do some research in any JSA forum of your choice.
