Our Hashibira Blade is an absolutely wicked shredder of a blade.
Finished in rough black oxide, our vertical spinner blade can deal an incredible amount of damage in a very short time.

Introducing our destructive vertical spinner blade, designed for a beetleweight spinner, the Hashibira blade. The blade is named in honor of Hashibira Inosuke, the fierce team member from Demon Slayer. Inosuke carries two katanas that have been modified to have rough, jagged edges. This style is perfectly in keeping with the Hashibira blade’s jagged, saw-like edges.
In general, the Hashibira blade is designed for vertical spinners, and it is far too heavy to be considered a possibility for an antweight.
There’s always a great debate as to which type of weapon is the best. One of the most definitive references on combat robotics, the RioBotz Combot tutorial concludes: “…disks are a better choice concerning both stresses (while delivering an impact) and moment inertia.” However, “they have a major drawback. If a vertical disk is hit by a horizontal spinner, or a horizontal disk is hit by a drum or vertical spinner…” they will be subject to major stress. Since most robots aren’t modular, builders must make their best decision as to weapons type– there are no clear answers. http://meggi.usuarios.rdc.puc-rio.br/docs/riobotz_combot_tutorial.pdf, pp156.
However, it’s absolutely clear that builders will make decisions based on their own instincts as to what will win- or not. The Hashibira blade is a great choice for maximum destructive power.
