The Hitsugibune[2] is a small craft used by the former Warlord, Dracule Mihawk.


The boat resembles a coffin and has candles lit on the edges that burn with green fire. The ship is only big enough for one person. At the center is a mast that resembles a large crucifix, similar to Mihawk's sword, with black sails and a seat for himself.


This meager craft has no apparent significance, but Mihawk was able to sail the unforgiving seas of the Grand Line on it, which is a testament to his skills.


It was first seen at the Baratie, which is not uncommon as the Baratie is close to the Grand Line.[1] Later, Mihawk arrives with her at an island that Shanks resides, in order to show him that Luffy is now a wanted pirate.

The following events are Non-Canon and therefore not considered part of the Canon story.

In the anime, Mihawk is seen on the boat, looking at Monkey D. Luffy's and Roronoa Zoro's bounty posters.[3]

Concludes non-canon section.


A model of Hitsugibune is presented in the One Piece Super Ship Collection.
