The Wado Ichimonji is a sword of great personal importance to Roronoa Zoro, and it was once Kuina's and her family's sword. It is also one of the 21 O Wazamono grade swords. Upon Kuina's death, Zoro asked for it from her father.
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.
It is described as "magnificent" by Tashigi when it catches her eye in Loguetown.
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.
When used by Zoro, this sword is usually placed in his mouth for his Santoryu. When using his Ittoryu, Zoro usually uses this sword for it. Its toughness is further demonstrated by the fact that Zoro used it for his Itto-Ryu Iai: Shishi Sonson technique against Mr. 1, cutting through his steel body.
Translation and Dub IssuesEdit

- ↑ SBS One Piece Manga - SBS Volume 13 - Fan question: When you say the "21 Oo-Wazamono", what do you mean by "Wazamono" and "21"? And then for the "Yubashiri", you said "unravelled edge with a small T". What the heck does that mean?! Huh???? I have no idea.
