The Kikujūmonji originally brought by Towa is a plain looking uchigatana with a brass-colored circular tsuba (guard) and kashira (pommel), and a red tsuka (wrap). The blade seems to have no hamon (temper line) or hi (fuller). Following battle with Mistress Three-Eyes, it is currently broken a quarter of the way from the tsuba. Towa apparently has not kept the remainder of the blade.
Towa is later given what appears to be the real Kikujūmonji, which has the hamon and hi expected of a genuine blade.
Legend says it once belonged to the esteemed shogun Ashikaga Yoshiteru (足利義輝). However, the one wielded by Towa Higurashi is revealed to be a mere replica given to the Higurashis on loan from a museum.
