This is a replica of Yoriichi Tsugikuni Nichirin Katana. Yoriichi is the greatest swordsman to have ever lived and the first person ever to be able to turn his Nichirin Sword into a bright red color as he was born with the mark that presumably gave users the ability to turn their blade bright red. His sword is a standard sized and shaped Nichirin katana that is deep black in color, but changes bright red during combat. The katana's tsuba has a rounded shaped with 4 slight indentations, with a black center and a golden border. Yoriichi's katana also has the words Slay (滅Metsu) engraved on the side. Along with his katana, Yoriichi also carries a standard sword saya.
Yoriichi is a legendary Demon Slayer who lived nearly 500 years ago during the Golden Age of Demon Slayers and was the strongest Demon Slayer to have ever existed.
Sun Breathing: Created by Yoriichi himself as the original Breathing Style which all other subsequent styles would be modeled after. Yoriichi was incredibly proficient in his Sun Breathing, being able to take down demons effortlessly and even overwhelm the Demon King and strongest Upper Rank. Tanjiro remarked that when Yoriichi performed the techniques of Sun Breathing, the forms were so strikingly beautiful and breathtaking, he looked more like a spirit than a man.
