This sword is a replica of Rukia Kuchiki's Ice-Type Zanpakutō Sode no Shirayuki (袖白雪 - "Sleeved White Snow"). The sword is distinctive in that it's pure white when released.
Shikai: Released by the command "Mae" (舞え -"Dance"), Sode no Shirayuki turns completely white, with the Tsuba changing from rectangular to circular and a white ribbon appearing. A gust of cold air rushes in all directions.
Bankai: Hakka no Togame (白霞罸 - "White Haze Punishment"). Attires the bearer in regal white clothes. Creates a cold mist that covers the area and freezes any nearby opponents, who quickly disintegrate. Anyone who touches the bearer will begin freezing solid.
Noted special abilities:
Some no mai, Tsukishiro (初の舞・月白 - "First Dance, White Moon") - draws a circle with the tip of the blade. Anyone caught in the circle will be frozen in a pillar of ice, which quickly shatters, along with the victim
Tsugi no mai, Hakuren (次の舞・白漣 - "Next Dance, White Ripple") - after puncturing the ground four times, ice rises from these punctures, gather together, and rush toward the enemy in a fountain of ice which engulfs the target
San no mai, Shirafune (参の舞・白刀 - "Third Dance, White Sword") - Gathers moisture from the air at the tip of the blade, increasing its length. Not only pierces and freezes the target, but also freezes the surrounding area
Juhaku (樹白 - "White Tree") - Stabbing the ground, creates a trail of ice which flows toward the target, freezing them from the ground up
