AppearanceEdit

Wado Ichimonji

Concept arts of Wado Ichimonji.

The sword has a pure-white hilt with a circular hand-guard. The sheath is painted white and the type of the blade is suguha or straight blade.[2]

It is described as "magnificent" by Tashigi when it catches her eye in Loguetown.

AbilitiesEdit

As one of the twenty-one finest katana in the world, Wado Ichimonji is a powerful blade when used by a competent swordsman. It is also quite durable, as shown when Dracule Mihawk's Yoru shattered two of Zoro's swords, this is the only one that did not break at all.[3]

When used by Zoro, this sword is usually placed in his mouth for his Santoryu. Prior to the timeskip, when using his Ittoryu, Zoro usually used this sword. After the timeskip he seems to favor Shusui for his Ittoryu. Its toughness is further demonstrated by the fact that Zoro used it for his Ittoryu Iai: Shishi Sonson technique against Mr. 1, cutting through his steel body.[4]

Currently, Tashigi of the Marines is hunting Zoro for this very blade since she cannot accept the fact that such a famous blade is in the hands of a pirate.[5]
