Tengu-kiri is a Weapon in Nioh.
"A katana that bears no inscription, but is thought to have been forged by a great swordsmith. Used by Yagyu Sekishusai, the length and deep curvature of the blade give it the appearance of a tachi. Sekishusai, a pupil of Kamiizumi Nobutsuna, is said to have trained each night by fighting tengu, a type of yokai. One evening, Sekishusai killed one of the creatures with a single cut ("kiri"), leaving behind an enormous boulder that had been riven clean in two in the tengu's place. This yokai-vanquishing power is said to be connected to mystical techniques, such as catching a sword using only one's bare hands."
