OK so this is not a sword, nor is it something for Cosplay, but they are freakin cool!! Ever wanted to have an Umbrella that was more than an Umbrella, well this aint it...well not exactly. It looks for all the world like a sword but in reality its is a super functional umbrella to keep you dry in the rain.
Another in the range of unnaturally stylish Anime Umbrellas. This one is styled on Rukia's zanpaku-tō, Sode no Shirayuki (literally "sleeved white snow") Doncha just love the cool names they make up for these swords? Anywho this umbrella is both stylish and has the unusual ability to prevent you from getting wet in the rain. Try that with a standard katana will ya!!
This is a stunning version of Rukia's Zanpakutō Sode no Shirayuki. Rukia Kuchiki is a character in the anime and manga series Bleach. In the series, Rukia is a Soul Reaper in the 13th Division under Jūshirō Ukitake. Shortly after meeting the main protagonist of the series, Ichigo Kurosaki, she is forced to give him her powers in order to fulfill her duties as a Soul Reaper.
The one exception to the "bankai is big" rule, Tensa Zangetsu is comparatively very small. In fact, this is the only form in which Zangetsu looks anything like a normal sword. He is still as long as he always was, but he now has a formal hilt, cross guard and blade. Instead of the cloth his Shi-kai form had, a short length of chain dangles from the base of the hilt. He finally gets a cross guard, though it isn't normal. Four prongs bend out to form the kanji for "ban", with the base of the blade at it's center. And every last square inch of him is dead black.
So this chap wears a bamboo mask most of the time, and speaks in a low gravelly voice which kinda gives the hint that he is not entirely human if you catch my drift. Turns out he is a Fox or some such canine, who'd have thunk it? (not to be confused with him being considered foxy if you catch my drift) This is his sword, and awesome it tis in the flesh, or steel....whatever.....
Wabisuke's blade doubles the weight of any object it strikes. For example, the first strike on an opponent wielding a 10 lb sword doubles the opposing sword's weight to 20 lbs. If Wabisuke strikes the sword a second time, the weight of the sword doubles to 40 lbs. After about eight or nine strikes, most opponents would be unable lift their swords and are brought down to their knees by the weight of their own weapon. With them immobile, the hook end of his blade can now show its gruesome function: Wabisuke can decapitate a fallen opponent by holding the square hook beneath his opponent's neck and lifting, like a reverse guillotine.

Yumichika is one of the 11th division Squad members, so, like the other member of this squad, he loves fighting. He also showed great respect to his captain, Zaraki Kenpachi and to his buddy, Ikkaku. He is the 5th seat of his squad, not because of his ability, but because the number 5 look the most like 3. (pretty weird…). He didn’t take the 3rd seat since it had already been taken by Ikkaku.
This is a really sweeet looking version of Ichego's Bankai sword. It is totally black so think NINJA style. Even if you are not a Bleach fan this sword has something special about it that sets it apart.
Byakuya Kuchiki is the 28th head of the noble Kuchiki clan, one of the four great noble families in Soul Society. As such, Byakuya acts in an aristocratic manner — he seems always serene and apathetic towards other people, even when he is actually deeply conflicted. He is also extremely calm, even in battle, and is very seldom surprised by even the most drastic of actions.
Bleach 3rd Division Captain Ichimaru Gin Wig.
A Cosplay version of the famed 'Cutting Moon' from Bleach. Its wooden so reasonable sturdy, yet lightweight enough that its relatively safe. (Hey its still a hunk of wood and if you hit someone in the head with it I imagine they will be pretty upset.)
Ichigo's zanpakutō is named Zangetsu (literally "cutting moon").Unlike most Soul Reapers, who can seal their zanpakutō after releasing it, Ichigo's zanpakutō is always in its released form. Zangetsu's special ability is the Getsuga Tenshō (literally "moon-fang slices the heavens"), a wave of spirit particles released from his blade's edge. Correspondent to the name, the wave is shaped like a crescent moon. Ichigo's bankai is a compression of his spiritual pressure, rather than a vast expansion as is usually the case. By compressing his power, Ichigo can move at incredibly high speeds.
Normal: Larger than most zanpakutou, but it has little power due to the fact that Ichigo can't control his spiritual pressure. This form of Ichigo's zanpakutou was broken by Kuchiki Byakuya. Zangetsu takes Ichigo's spiritual pressure and releases the super high density pressure from the blade and the Zangeki becomes bigger then explodes.
Grimmjow Jaegerjaquez is a prominent member in the Aizen-affiliated army of Arrancar, and the sexta (6th) Espada.His Zanpakutō is called Pantera Spanish for "Panther", Japanese for "Panther King"). His Zanpakutō's tsuba resembles a rigid, crooked "S," while the sheath and handle are blue. His release command for his Zanpakutō is "Grind", referring to grinding one's teeth. To release his Zanpakutō, he holds it up, like the start of a low sweep stroke, with his right hand. The sword glows light blue as he puts his left hand up to it. He then rakes his hand along the length of the blade, with a swift motion, while calling out its release command, in turn releasing a torrent of spiritual power that causes tremendous gusts of wind in the immediate vicinity.
