Bandai has teamed up with PROPLICA for a life-sized replica of a blade depicted in the Japanese anime Demon Slayer: Kimetsu no Yaiba. The katana belongs to the character Kyojuro Rengoku, the Flame Hashira of the Demon Slayer Corps.

Sporting a yellow end cap and crossguard, white cloth binding at the handles and a long handle with red temper lines, this PROPLICA replicates the sword in the anime with close detail. The piece is engraved with Japanese kanji near the crossgaurd as a finishing touch. The blade also comes with buttons that activate voices and the anime’s theme song “Red Lotus.”

Though no official release dates have been confirmed for Bandai and PROPLICA’s Demon Slayer: Kimetsu no Yaiba blade, scroll above for an early look at the collectible piece.
