Formerly, Sakura no Ken was a wooden blade of the same form. Gifted and created by Stryder's very own existence, it is loyal to Stryder. The blade itself is governed by Stryder and it's spirit, Sakura no Ken. After Stryder mastered and befriended the blade, he was able to unlock Sakura no Ken's true form and potential, allowing him many abilities beyond imagination.
The blade takes the form of a straight, double edged sword, a Jian. It is white and flawless, along with it's scabbard. It is 40 inches (101.6 centimeters) in length.
Stryder can use it with extreme efficiency, most claim he fights "Lady-Like". The sword, when released, turns into one thousand cherry blossoms and allows Stryder to summon more for use. The sword's spirit, Sakura no Ken, can also physically manifest to assist Stryder in combat.

The blade holds an alternating current that weakens the molecular bonds of anything that is brought near it, allowing it to forcefully cut through virtually anything. For stronger and most resistant materials, it takes several slices against the material to reduce the durability of that material, allowing the blade to sear through it.
Stryder can also amplify this cutting ability by taking off the blade's seal. This allows him to use its Absolute Cutting Wind technique which lasts as a permanent effect until sealed or sheathed by its specially made sheath that negates the absolute sharpness. (Reference : Absolute Slicing.)
