Aikuchi is a form of mounting for Japanese blades in which the handle and the scabbard meet without a guard in between. Originally used on the koshigatana (a precursor to the wakizashi) to facilitate close wearing with armor, it became a fashionable upper-class mounting style for tanto (daggers) in the Edo period.
Sword is great! I really like, all I gotta say is that the Habaki is a bit big or that the case is a bit small so the sword doesn't really go in all the way. It can be forced close but then it jams the sword

Came fast and was exactly as pictured.
Fair warning to those who are collecting all of Zoro swords. It is accurate to the anime/manga. However, when put up against the Wado Ichimonji and Sandai Kitetsu purchased from here it looks almost cartoonish in comparison. It still is a beautiful piece of work but the display of the collection gets thrown off.
I've gotten all my katanas so far from truekatana and they never disappoint in quality. Will definitely be add to my collections from here.

I would say its a great display piece for its price, but poor to use. The katana is quite beautiful in it's design but I would have to say it is not recommended for anyone using it for practice/exercise. The blade is unusually thick for a katana and it suffers poor balance as a result which makes it difficult to swing and requires much more effort to control. Also, on mine at least, the blade guard above the tsuba is poorly shaped and causes catching on the scabbard when placing the blade back inside.

I love these demon slayer replicas. I own 3. I like 2 of mine very well. The 3rd however, I do not. The Zenitsu replica has some issues. You expect some minor issues with a replica. Mine however has some issues. The lightning painted on the blade is ok on one side but the other side the lightning goes over the black and onto the blade. Theres also rust on mine, which I will have to buff out. The fit into the saya is so. Freaking. Tight. I had to literally use a hammer to get it to release. Even now I can't close it, or it's the hammer again. In summary, the swords are great and I might just have gotten a dud with the 1. Remember though folks, "Don't lick the blade". 😆

The sword was really nice, and came at a very fast time. I wish the sword would’ve came in something like a soft sword bag.
