The Murata-tou (村田刀) is a Kissaki Moroha-Zukuri-style double-edged nihonto katana made in the Tokyo Armory by General Murata (inventor of the Murata Rifle) during the Meiji Era.

It was owned by Souichiro Takagi until he gave it to Saeko Busujima as a gift for protecting his daughter Saya Takagi and as an exchange for the Kendo/Iaido training that he received from Saeko's father in the past.

Saeko uses this sword, in place of her bokken and the katana that Takashi found in the shrine, after receiving it from Souichiro at the Takagi Estate.

TriviaEdit

  • The term "Kissaki Moroha-Zukuri" (切先両刃造) is literally translated as "double-edged sword point structure" and describes a type of blade used in the twentieth century as cavalry sabers that were most commonly seen in Japanese military parades.
