Final Fantasy Brave ExviusEdit

FFBE

A katana of such beauty it is a pity to put to use. The chrysanthemums that adorn its scabbard are a symbol of nobility that was often used as a coat of arms. Originally this type of blade as forged exclusively for the royal family, and thus only a handful of blacksmiths were allowed to use this design on their pieces. For a samurai, receiving the kiku-ichimonji from his lord was the ultimate honor.
