The Roukanken (longer sword) and Hakurouken (shorter sword) being wielded by Youmu


Roukanken is a long-bladed katana said to be made by youkai, too long to be wielded by normal humans. It's said that it has the power to kill ten spirits in one stroke, but as one cannot actually kill spirits, the truth of this claim is debatable. Youmu herself claims that "The things that cannot be cut by my Roukanken, forged by youkai, are close to none!" Roukanken's sheath has a flower on top of it attached with a seal and a little rope.

Hakurouken is the ancestral wakizashi of the Konpaku family, which only they are capable of using. It has the power to dispel the confusion of those it cuts. That is, using it on humans will cause them minor pain and discomfort, while using it on ghosts will send them to nirvana.
