More About the Knife

The name Raikiri comes from a story about a famous 16th century samurai, Tachibana Dosetsu, who possessed a famous sword known as Chidori (literally meaning 'A Thousand Birds'). One day, while taking shelter from the rain under a tree, a bolt of lightning struck him. However, Tachibana used his Chidori to cut the Thunder God inside the lightning bolt, allowing him to survive. After this incident, he renamed his blade from 'Chidori' to 'Raikiri', literally meaning "Lightning Blade."
