A katana praised for its ability to slice anything, including the air itself. It is said to be able to cut the whirlwinds created by giant birds in half. There was once an incident where a great many people were hacked down by this blade in the dark of night. The resulting mound of dismembered bodies was said to resemble the aftermath of a ferocious metal-clawed beast.
