The Sacred Sword (神剣 Shinken) is Kamui's weapon. "Shinken" can be taken to imply the meaning "sword that is gifted by god(s)" or "sword that is offered as a sacrifice to god(s)". The inscription upon the blade of the Sacred Sword is a Hebrew prayer and reads:

Barukh attah adonai eloheinu melekh ha-olam, she-ha-kol nihyeh bi-d'varo.

This translates into English as: Praised are You, Lord God, King of the Universe, at whose Word all things come into being.
