The Shigure Kintoki is a bamboo sword that transforms into a metal sword when Shigure Soen Ryu is used.
Appearance[edit | edit source]
It is a typical brown bamboo sword that transforms into a steel sword with bandages on its hilt. A swallow is engraved near the scabbard mouth.
Description[edit | edit source]
The Shigure Kintoki has been passed down through Yamamoto's family for generations, used only by those who mastered Shigure Soen Ryu. The Shigure Kintoki first appears as a plain-looking bamboo sword, but it is revealed that only if the user uses the Shigure Soen Ryu technique will it shed its bamboo cover. The katana will turn back into a bamboo sword once it is not used for a Shigure Soen Ryu technique.
