Kikuichimonji

Kiku-ichimonji is a collective name given to the swords made for Emperor Go-Toba of Japan in 1208 by thirteen swordsmiths. Each of the smiths served for one month, and were called Norimune, Sadatsugu, Nobufusa, Kuniyasu, Tsunetsugu, Hisakuni, Kunitomo, Muneyoshi, Tsuguie, Sukemune, Yukikuni, Sukenari and Sukenobu. The name itself comes from how the Emperor gave permission to these swordsmiths to inscribe the imperial seal 菊 [kiku] on the swords in addition to the 一 [ichi] character the swordsmiths of the Fukuoka school usually added. 文字 [monji] stands for 'character', thus the name is "kiku-ichi character [swords]".
菊一文字 / きくいちもんじ [kikuichimonji] in Japanese. Also spelled Kiku-ichimonji in some games.

Profile: A katana with a blade so beautiful it feels regrettable to use it. Its specialty is the lotus symbol carved on its scabbard. The lotus flower represents nobility, and it was often used in sigils. Even this katana was made with the intention of presenting it to the royalty, and as such a certain number of swordsmiths were permitted to carve the lotus symbol. To be bestowed a sword like this by their master was the pride of a samurai.
