Tonbokiri (蜻蛉切, Tonbogiri)? is a weapon in the series.


The Tonbokiri, along with the Nihongō and Otegine, is one of three legendary Japanese spears created by the famed swordsmith Fujiwara Masazane, said to be wielded by Honda Tadakatsu, a leading general of Tokugawa Ieyasu. It derives its name from the myth that a dragonfly landed on its blade and was instantly cut in two. Thus tonbo (Japanese for "dragonfly") and kiri (Japanese for "cutting"), translating this spear's name as "Dragonfly Cutter."
