The Totsuka-no-Tsurugi (十拳剣), literally "Sword of Ten Hand-Breadths", is a classification or grouping of swords in Japanese mythology, with one of the most famous being wielded by Susanoo-no-Mikoto, a prominent god or Kami associated with the harvest, fields, seas, and storms. It was once in Asama Miya's possession, presumably as her primary weapon, and can be seen in a flashback narrated by Miya. Miya mentioned that when she left MBI, as part of moving on from her previous role as Disciplinary Squad leader and an enforcer of MBI's interests, she simply "threw it away." It is unknown if this Totsuka-no-Tsurugi is meant to be a sacred and/or ancestral weapon of the Sekirei, or one created by the Shinto gods and previously wielded by said gods as per the original stories/myths.
