Sasuke Uchiha claimed that the chokutō he wields is a Sword of Kusanagi; it has a blue scabbard and matching handle (these are both black in the manga), and is a larger size than a normal chokutō. Despite this, it has none of the natural specialties as the one Orochimaru wields, such as the extension of the blade and the ability to cut through almost anything, both of which are natural attributes of the Kusanagi.

To compensate for this, Sasuke can channel his lightning chakra into the blade with chakra flow, which will increase its sharpness greatly through high frequency vibrations, as well as increasing its cutting range. This would allow Sasuke to cut through almost anything, as well as numb the target who has been pierced by this lightning blade. During the Fourth Shinobi World War, a reincarnated Itachi Uchiha while cooperating with his brother temporarily wielded the blade to combat Kabuto Yakushi.


The Kusanagi no Tsurugi (草薙劍, Literally meaning: Grass Cutter Sword) is one of the Three Imperial Regalia of Japan (三種の神器, Sanshu no Jingi), together with the Yata no Kagami (八咫鏡, Literally meaning: Eight Span Mirror) and the Yasakani no Magatama (八尺瓊曲玉, Literally meaning: Eight Shaku Curved Jewel).
