I suppose the kanji is trustworthy too.21:25, July 31, 2013 (UTC)
- Wait, I don't see the sword whereabouts in the first link. Talks about something becoming a new Shichibukai... that's it. 21:27, July 31, 2013 (UTC)
according to the article it is also named in SBS volume 71 and this is the post gal is referring to

I meant the second article, the SBS screenshot.23:49, July 31, 2013 (UTC)
According tothis site, the SBS translation about the sword is the following:
R: What is the name of Law’s sword? How many tattoos does Law have!? Odacchi… Please draw all of Law’s tattoo! (>_<)
O: All right, I got it— Well then, from my sketch notes [points to tattoo] He has slightly strange heart tattoos. I wonder if there’s a reason for that? The name of his katana is Kikoku [hard to read, but the kanji is made of ‘demon and laughter’ - This is confusing because I read it 鬼笑 as kishou but the furigana has koku at the end] [can’t read this part because it’s blurry] It’s a youtou [demon sword, possessed sword]
Copy pasted this dialogue from the AP forum discussion.

huh, interesting. i never expected his sword to have a name. AsuraDrago 20:26, September 24, 2013 (UTC)
At beginning it says "It is a cursed sword, and it is not a ranked blade." I understand the cursed part but what does it mean by ranked? Should I change that to meito?--Haru3173 (talk) 15:24, January 7, 2014 (UTC)
Just that it has no rank like Wazamono etc. It's fine the way it is - "it has no rank" was the wording used in the SBS response. 15:45, January 7, 2014 (UTC)
Strength of the Blade itself?Edit
I've been wondering for a while now if the blade was able to block doflamingo's ito ito strings or was it ope ope in conjunction with the blade? I have a feeling that the blade was strong enough and ope ope just changes the force and distance behind the blade, allowing Law to cut things from far away distances and easily.
Kikoku is a Meito?Edit
From what I see in the Volume 71 SBS, there does not appear to be anything that states that this Law's sword is a Meito. In fact, it's stated that it has no rank, which proves the contrary.
