Shosuro Blade was a katana forged to resist the contact of poison, used by Shosuro Assassins to assure a deadly poisoned strike. [1] It was first crafted by Shosuro Yakakina. [2]

Poisoned Weapon Edit

The blade had a small series of indentions on the back side towards the tsuba. each held a small amount of poison sealed over in wax. Silk threads dyed to match the blade were run down the back side of the blade. The duelist released the posion when the blade was unsheathed, using the blade's momentum to propel the poison forward towards the tip. It was only a matter of time until the opponent would fall victim to the poison. These indentations, when empty, appeared to be nothing more than a decoration created by a unique swordsmith. [2]
