Kiriichimonji, like all other Shingu, was created four hundred years before the start of the series; the Emperor in charge of their creation had attempted to create weapons that would surpass the Teigu, but failed.
It has been stated that wounds inflicted using Kiriichimonji will never heal; otherwise, it has no other abilities.
- Kiriichimonji's name can be interpreted as "cutting in a straight line".
