Demon Slayer fans can soon get their hands on a replica Nichirin Blade based on the Flame Hashira Kyojuro Rengoku’s sword. The 1:1 scale replica katana will be part of the same PROPLICA Demon Slayer Nichirin Blade series that included a Tanjiro Kamado’s replica Nichirin Blade in October 2020. People in Japan can pre-order Kyojuro Rengoku’s replica Nichirin Blade for 11,000 yen (~$106) starting 4pm JST on January 15, 2021. [Thanks, Famitsu.]
The blade will be approximately 950mm long. The manufacturers calculated the katana’s size to ensure it would be the same size as Kyojuro Rengoku’s, based on his official height.
Everything from the grip to the engraved “惡鬼滅殺” (“destroy evil demons”) will be made to realistically mimic his katana. All of the finer details were supervised by official staff, including the flames’ different colors and shades.
Similar to the Tanjiro Kamado replica blade, it will come with different modes so it can play sounds from the series. The “Demon Slaying Mode” will use Kyojuro quotes from Demon Slayer: Kimetsu no Yaiba the Movie: Mugen Train. The other SFX mode is called “Umai Mode,” and it will play recordings of Kyojuro saying “Umai!” (“Good!”) from the movie. Both modes will include various sound effects of Kyojuro using “Flame Breathing” techniques from the film as well.
