The article says that this sword is unique. Where does that come from? As far as we know, it doesn't have any unique abilities. That's to my knowledge, anyways. Is it given further abilities in a databook, fanbook, or am I missing something? And yes, I know that it is named, but it's not that uncommon to name a sword, even if it is without powers.Ryne 91 (talk) 22:34, March 28, 2011 (UTC)

It was asked a while back and if i'm not mistaken Shounensuki said so as the blade was actually named. --Cerez™☺ 22:38, March 28, 2011 (UTC)

Hey, I only copied it from Raidō Namiashi's page, under his "Abilities" section. Unique or not, I don't know, so correct it from there and here if you disagree. But for me to create this page is not wrong, just like the Kurosawa. Yatanogarasu 22:38, March 28, 2011 (UTC)

Cool your jets. If I ask a question, it's because I'm curious. I like to learn new things, after all. I was merely wondering what made it unique, though I suppose it being named when most other swords lack names makes it unique enough.Ryne 91 (talk) 22:41, March 28, 2011 (UTC)
I don't think he's hyped up friend. I think the article should be fine. --Cerez™☺ 22:42, March 28, 2011 (UTC)
Yuh-huh, fair enough. But these days, other people are questioning validity of pages left and right, so I thought I clear things up. Yatanogarasu 22:44, March 28, 2011 (UTC)
Ah, I suppose it just read that way to me. And yeah, I had no problem with the article at all. It's somewhat interesting to see a page on it. It's always good to have a plethora or articles, after all.Ryne 91 (talk) 22:46, March 28, 2011 (UTC)


Is it "Black Blade" or "Ebony Blade"? The Koku part literally translates to "Black", so why do we have to use "Ebony" to make it sound more fancy? Ebony is actually "dense black wood". Yatanogarasu 22:44, March 28, 2011 (UTC)

Is there a different between ebony and black, really? Ebony is both a term for the color and a type of tree. That much, I know.Ryne 91 (talk) 22:46, March 28, 2011 (UTC)
Yeah, but wouldn't "Black" be more accurate and literal? Yatanogarasu 22:47, March 28, 2011 (UTC)
Ask Shounen, we're supposed to use direct translations at all times if possible. --Cerez™☺ 22:54, March 28, 2011 (UTC)
