The blue Nichirin Blade symbolizes water, and it's also the first Nichirin Blade we see in the series. Giyu Tomioka, the Pillar of Water of the Demon Slayer Corps, wields a blue blade that he uses with his Breath of Water style, making him one of the most formidable among the Pillars.
Tomioka's fighting style is very water-like. He moves in a fluid, almost effortless motions to make short work of demons. He killed both the Father Spider Demon and Rui, the Lower Moon Five demon, with one fluid motion in each kill.
This sword is a replica of Giyu Tomioka Nichirin Katana sword. His katana is in a shade of dark blue, complementing his breathing style, Water Breathing. The tsuba is hexagonal shaped with a bronze core and with an overlapping red border and his scabbard is black in color. On the side of his katana, the words "Destroy Demons" are carved.
In order to become one of the highest-ranking demon slayers, known as the Nine Hashira, you must first prove your worthiness. That kind of training and dedication could not be achieved without the assistance of a reliable Nichirin, which is the sword or weapon that is specially made for a demon slayer to kill demons.
This replica katana is made to look just like the new version of the sword owned by Giyu Tomioka, who is a very powerful member of the nine Hashira in the series that specializes in water breathing. The blade is constructed of high carbon steel with a factory edge and sports a black and silver finish. Etched onto the side of the blade are the Kanji for “Destroy Demons”. A black faux ray skin handle is wrapped meticulously with black cotton in a traditional Japanese Style. The steel hand guard features a hexagonal design in a bright red and black finish. Included with this beautiful collectible katana sword is a shiny hard black scabbard to house your blade when not defeating demons.
Water Breathing: Giyu has completely mastered this breathing style, becoming arguably the most powerful and skilled user of this breathing style, to the point it even impressed Upper Rank 3, Akaza. Furthermore, Giyu created an entirely new form he named Eleventh Form: Dead Calm.
First Form: Water Surface Slash: The user generates enough momentum to create a powerful single concentrated slash.
Second Form: Water Wheel: The user leaps and vertically spins forward in the air while releasing a flowing attack in a circular motion.
Third Form: Flowing Dance: The user swings and bends their blade in a winding motion along with their body and dances in a flowing pattern, slicing everything in its path.
Fourth Form: Striking Tide: The user makes multiple consecutive slashes while twisting their body and sword in a flowing fashion to deliver multiple blows simultaneously.
Fifth Form: Blessed Rain After the Drought: The user changes the grip on their sword and decapitates the opponent in a single flowing strike that causes little to no pain. It is a “sword strike of kindness” used when the enemy willingly surrenders.
Sixth Form: Whirlpool: The user fiercely twists their upper and lower body, creating a whirlpool of air that cuts anything caught in it. Its effect and efficiently is enhanced underwater, where the user can draw water around their weapon to enhance their slashes.
Seventh Form: Drop Ripple Thrust: The user performs a fast and accurate stab, capable of reducing the impact of a moving target.
Eighth Form: Waterfall Basin: The user cuts the target vertically in a flowing motion which is most effective when they are falling downward.
Ninth Form: Splashing Water Flow: The user changes their footwork in a way that minimizes the landing time and surface needed when landing, allowing the user to move without limits. Ideal when fighting in a place with no solid foothold.
Tenth Form: Constant Flux: The user performs a continuous flowing attack which seemingly takes the form of a water dragon that increases in strength and power with each rotation due to momentum.
Eleventh Form: Dead Calm: The personal creation of the current Water Hashira, Giyu Tomioka. The user ceases all body movements and enters a state of complete tranquility, deflecting, blocking and cutting any incoming attacks with imperceptible speed with his blade. However, its effectiveness is limited as fast and numerous attacks can break through.
