Masashigi's Blade 
Masashigi's Blade
Created by: Kakita family
First used by: Daidoji Masashigi
Currently in the possession of: Mantis Clan
Nemuranai

Masashigi's Blade was the sword wielded by Daidoji Masashigi in the Battle of Tidal Landbridge. [1]

Abilities Edit

A Kuni Shugenja had bound an Earth and Water kami to the blade. The blade regenerated itself from damage, and its wielder stunned their enemies more easily than a normal blade. [2]

Daidoji Masashigi Edit

Masashigi led his guards across the Tidal Landbridge when it was assaulted by the cunning Oni no Kinjiro in 715. Masashigi could be seen battling the oni as the sea came rising up over the landbridge. The only remains found afterwards was the battered helmet of Masashigi. [3] [4]

Mantis Clan Edit

The Kakita blade survived the ocean's embrace for hundreds of years. The time the sword spent in the sea strengthened its connection to Water and Earth. The blade was discovered by the Mantis Clan Champion Yoritomo Kumiko following a battle with the Dark Wave Fleet in the waters just north and east of the Sea of Shadows. [2]

Secrecy Edit

The recovery of the sword was kept secret, lest the Crane discovered it still existed. The katana was used to perform special tasks for the Mantis Clan Champion. The weapon was returned to the Clan Champion when the mission was complete. The blade was moved each time it was used. [2]
