Kotowari (Kotowari) is a sword that once belonged to the former Colorless King, Ichigen Miwa. It is currently in Kuroh Yatogami’s possession.[1]


It is a katana with black tsuka ito weave with an ornate silver same under the cord, and a bronze kashira. It has a black tsuba with a normal steel blade; the scabbard is dark blue and has a bronze tip that matches the kashira.[2]


It is formerly the weapon of the late Colorless King, Ichigen Miwa. However, prior to his death, it was sealed deep under the lake guarded by a giant.[3] The true extent of its power it's unknown, however it seems to be able to bypass the Silver King's power of inviolability.[4]
