Sandai Kitetsu may not be one of the strongest swords in the One Piece anime series, but it is certainly a sword to be reckoned with, especially in the hands of its owner Zoro Roronoa. Zoro picked this sword from a barrel of cheap katanas, sensing its power. Being a kitetsu, this sword is said to be cursed, and would promise its owner an unfortunate demise. Testing that theory, Zoro threw the sword high into the air and held out his arm, allowing it to be cut off by the sword should he be unworthy. Zoro’s luck prevailed and the blade did not cause harm. Even though this sword is considered a “problem child”, it is still a valuable set in Zoro’s arsenal and able to tackle unimaginable feats.
This replica may be made of foam, but it is certainly no children’s toy. This Sandai Kitetsu katana sword is composed of polyurethane foam and features a 10 mm fiberglass core. Polyurethane foam is both durable and flexible, and the added fiberglass core creates a strong sword that can be used for cosplay as well as kicking bad guy butt in mock battle. The base of the blade is black, and the hamon is painted white in a dancing flame design. The handle is molded to resemble a traditional Japanese wrapping in red cloth, with an underlayer of black ray skin. A painted silver band is also featured on the middle of the handle. A painted silver pommel tops the handle, and a silver foam guard shaped like a rounded cross comes detached for easy assembly. A mock habaki and fuchi separates the blade from the handle, with a ridge in between the two to nest the hand guard. Included with your purchase is a vibrant red hard plastic scabbard with painted black and silver detailing to perfectly match the sword in the anime series. Overall Length: 40.5 inches, Blade Length: 29.5 inches
