Kyojuro Rengokuno’s iconic blade now has a life-sized replica for sale. Granted, Tanjiro was the first character from Demon Slayer to have his sword replicated for public consumption, but we’re not talking about Tanjiro right now.
The Nichirin Blade replica is 95 centimeters (about 3 feet) long. The Japanese characters for “slaying demons” are branded into the metal collar mounted between a sword blade and the handguard.
Also, this replica will be able to play iconic lines from the anime by pressing a button. It will also be able to play “Homura,” the theme song from Demon Slayer: Infinity Train, as well as a selection of Tanjiro’s lines. I don’t know why Tanjiro’s lines would be included in this sword replica because he has his own sword replica, and this is Rengoku’s sword but go off, I guess.
Objectively speaking, Rengoku’s sword replica is beautiful. Tamashii Nations’ did an amazing job of replicating the sword. I know that you can see the pictures and that may have a different opinion, but I just wanted to put that out there.
Tamashii Nations’ is selling Nichirin Blade for 11,000 yen (approximately US$105) and the sword is aimed for adults. Orders opened on the Tamashii Web Shouten online store today, and the item is expected to ship in July.
