Much like the one seen in Kaname Tosen's hands in the Japanese anime, Bleach, this is a replica of Suzumushi the zanpakuto. The steel blade measures 27" and the orange-cord wrapped, hardwood handle measures 11", making the sword measure 41" overall. The teardrop-shaped, metal guard is quality made with great attention to detail. Comes complete with a hardwood scabbard.
More About Kaname Tosen's Suzumushi: Originally, Suzumushi, lossely translated as "cricket", was the sword of Tosen's friend; he inherits the sword when his friend is murdered and carries with him her righteous sense of justice and peace. The tear-shaped guard of Tosen's sword is meant to symbolize the loss in his life. Born blind, much of the swords power has to do with disillusionment and the loss of the sense for his oponents.
