These are kunai-like blades wielded by Izumo and Kotetsu. They have the general appearance of kunai with similar bases, but the blades instead are curved, elongated and single-edged, giving them similar appearance and function to swords. Each of the blades has a small hole right near its long, bandaged hilt, which at its edge sports a larger versions of the standard ring all kunai have. They are usually carried by Kotetsu, bandaged and strapped to his back. Izumo and Kotetsu can connect the two blades with a chain attached to a weight, which they can use to wrap up an opponent.
