but I thought it was unbreakable. I mean he has cut even a corridor with it and it didn't broke.
and I thought the Knife was the standart killing weapon of the Nanayas since the knife was aside the stone and the club the first and most basical weapon.

If one think about it the best weapon for Shiki would be some kind of claw, wouldn't it?

I don't know, a claw doesn't sound too accurate if you want to stab a dot or cut a specific line...a knife is just right methinks

I've played too much RO... 'overpowered!!!!!' was the first thing that popped into my head.

But Shiki's ability is pretty OP already. :P

hmm
his own nails would do it too.I mean long ( not too long) nails so could he cut and stab everything and they wouldn't get broken since to cut the lines doesn't need any knd of presssure.
like the nemesis of Wolverine in X men 2 ( the asian girl)
That would be awesome. :shock:

Hey guys, don't forget that Shiki is very skillful with a knife. In Nanaya mode, his proficiency is godly.

Deathstryke? Well, I hardly think Shiki's gonna go in for an Adamantium bath any time soon... Ah well, as long as he doesn't suffer the problem Ryougi Shiki does. >_>;;

What about Ryogi Shiki's knife? Is that an heirloom passed down the Ryogi family generation? Or is it that fancy katana she uses that has special powers anf history? It seems Nanaya's knife doesn't have lines of death on it so its pretty unbreakable. But I would think Ryogi's katana could be broken with the death lines on the long blade.

Eh, I think I can remember reading the katana is somewhat special...don't quote me on that though.

I think the katana broke. Can't be sure since I didn't read KnK much.

The katana broke, because it is REALLY old.

Aside from being a keepsake of Shiki's Nanaya family/bloodline, I don't think it has any other meaning.

...thread necromancer

@topic
Nanaya Shiki's knife (Nanaya, or Nanatsu Yoru... depending on how you want to read it) is a switchblade.
In Assassin's Creed Brotherhood, the Templar's Hunter also use Switchblades (they're not OTF like Shiki's though).
An Assassin's Hidden Blade (which is basically an OTF switchblade strapped to one's arm) is fine too...

I wonder if Shiki could just like, throw handfuls of sand everywhere and try to hit someone's point of death with it?

Not...entirely related, but does anyone know what kind of switchblade his knife is, or the dimensions?

Oh and, this is some pretty incredible thread necromancy. Although, this place does seem like a graveyard at times.

It's a dual action OTF (out the front) switchblade knife without a visible switch. Only visible feature is the engraving on the handle. The blade itself has been replaced by Kohaku though.

Wait what, when and where and why? It's a pretty well made knife, so wouldnt it be hard for her to find a blade for it and modify it?

Well Kohaku did give it to him in front of the mansion, so there is a good change that she messed with it. I mean the way she was acting was like she did something with it in the first place. Either that or it's an implied sense since this is Kohaku we're speaking of.

As far as I know, common opinion is that Kohaku gave Shiki the knife to 'help' him lose his mind. I've never heard about Kohaku messing with the knife.

In other words: Source plz, or else 'bullshit'.

I always thought that old man Mikihisa kept the knife for Shiki to use in case of "emergency", and that he adopted Shiki not only because he shares the same name with his own son but also because he needed a Nanaya to handle any member of the Tohno family who inverts, just as he needed Kohaku and Hisui to handle the impulses.

Kohaku just changed the blade of the knife when they (Shiki, Hisui, and Kohaku if I recall correctly) saw that the original blade can't be used anymore. It was just a little maintenance, if you ask me.

But where did you read this? I've never heard of it.
