Sasuke Sword of Kusanagi - Naruto

uchiha sasuke sword kusanagi sword
Uchiha Sasuke Sword of Kusanagi made its first appearance in the manga Naruto chapter 308 and the sword’s name was highly debated among Naruto fans. In that chapter titled Sasuke’s Strength, Sasuke was quoted “You see, the sword of Kusanagi I hold here is a little special”. This caused some confusion because Orochimaru also had a Kusanagi sword when he battled it out with the 3rd Hokage but it looked more like a katana.

The Sasuke sword of Kusanagi is a chokuto which is a straight Japanese sword. The chokuto’s design originated from Japan’s neighbours – Korea and China. It was developed before the discovery of differential heat treatment or tempering technology which later gave birth to the Japanese katana. The chokuto is easily recognized by its straight blade compared to the curved katana.

The name Kusanagi or more accurately Kusanagi-no-Tsurugi (Sword of Kusanagi) actually came from Japanese myth. Legend has it the Japanese god Susa-no-o (ring a bell?) encountered Ashinazuchi who is the head of a family with 8 daughters. Ashinazuchi lost 7 daughters eaten by an eight-headed serpent called Yamata-no-Orochi. The serpent was coming for the last daughter Kushinade-hime so Ashinazuchi begged Susa-no-o for help which the Japanese god agreed in exchange for Kushinade-hime’s hand in marriage. Susa-no-o instructed Ashinazuchi to prepare eight vats of sake placed separately behind a barrier with eight gates. The serpent took the bait and slithered each of its eight heads through each gate. At that instance, Susa-no-o striked and severed all the heads before proceeding with the tails. Susa-no-o later discovered a sword inside the slain body of the serpent which he named Ama-no-Murakumo-no-Tsurugi or “Sword of the Gathering Clouds of Heaven”. He then presented the sword to the goddess Amaterasu to resolve an old grievance. That sword’s name was later changed to the widely known Kusanagi-no-Tsurugi (Sword of Kusanagi).
