Durandal is one of the Meito. It is currently owned by Cavendish.[2]


Durandal is a small sword, and is almost equal to Cavendish's height when he is sitting. Its sheath and hilt have a dark-light colored, vertical-striped pattern. The hilt is also adorned with several rings and graven flowers.[1]

When Durandal is unsheathed, it seems to steadily shine.[2]


The sword was strong enough to hold back Chinjao's headbutt attack (although it did slightly bend).[2] His techniques are generally named from famous drama plays.

Attack ListEdit

  • Biken: Blue Bird (美剣 青い鳥 (ブルーバード) Biken: Burū Bādo?, literally meaning "Beautiful Sword: Blue Bird"): Cavendish stabs his enemy directly with force. This attack is strong enough to hold Chinjao's strong headbutt which also creates a small shock-wave while clashing. This attack was first seen against Chinjao in Corrida Colosseum.[2] The Blue Bird is a Belgian play.
  • Biken: Swan Lake (美剣 白鳥の湖 (スワン・レイク) Biken: Suwan Reiku?, literally meaning "Beautiful Sword: Swan Lake"): Cavendish does a flip over his enemies and attacks them from above. This attack was first seen against Donquixote's thugs. Swan Lake is a Russian ballet.
Zan t-Exupéry

Cavendish uses Zan t-Exupéry to create a path.

  • Biken: Zan t-Exupéry (美剣 斬・星屑王子 (ザン・テグジュペリ) Biken: Zan Tegujuperi?, literally meaning "Beautiful Sword: Slash: Stardust Prince"): Cavendish slashes the air in front of him which knocks his enemies away. This attack was first seen when Cavendish used it to carve a path spiraling up around the plateau on Dressrosa.[3] Antoine de Saint-Exupéry was the author of the novel The Little Prince. The meaning of attack, the novel and Cavendish's epithet are puns, ending with prince.
  • Biken: Round Table (美剣 円卓 (ラウンドテーブル) Biken: Raundo Tēburu?, literally meaning "Beautiful Sword: Round Table"): Cavendish slashes his enemy in circle formation while he is spinning. This attack was first seen against immortal skull toys after one of them bit Farul.[4] The "Round Table" is King Arthur's famed table in the Arthurian legend, around which he and his knights congregate. The Round Table is also a collection of English essays.
  • Precious Metal Axe (金の斧銀の斧 (プレシャスメタルアックス) Pureshasu Metaru Akkusu?, literally meaning "Golden Axe, Silver Axe"): While running, Cavendish takes a defensive stance, intercepting multiple attacks coming from his side. First used to protect Nico Robin and Trafalgar Law from Doflamingo's string bullets.[5] The Golden Axe and Silver Axe, also known as The Honest Woodman, is a fable of Aesop.
