Most of it is hidden and it's hardly the focus of the clip, but I'd call it a katana. It appears to have a moderate curve, rounded and decorated tsuba, and a blade length of around 2 feet (or 2 shaku, if you want to go technical). There is very little historical evidence for ninjato as a specific ninja weapon, but they are usually described as shorter and straighter than katana with a plain, square or disc-shaped tsuba.

That said, katana would not be worn slung on the back, but edge-up through an obi. A ninjato (if such a thing existed) would be worn as the one in the video is. 

If you're asking for the particular model as sold in SL, I don't know. I have seen that one (it has a very characteristic animated ribbon on the pommel) but I've no idea who makes it.
