One Piece Pirate Zoro's Sword Made Into an Umbrella
posted on by Egan Loo
The Japanese manufacturer Imperial Enterprise announced on Friday that it will sell an umbrella — in the form of Zoro's sword from Eiichiro Oda's One Piece pirate manga and anime — on June 20. Only 9,999 will be made of the Roronoa Zoro Wadō Ichimonji Kenshi no Amagasa (Roronoa Zoro's Wadō Ichimonji: Swordsman's Umbrella) in this year's One Piece Premium Collection. As the name implies, the umbrella is modelled after the signature Wadō Ichimonji sword of the Straw Hat Pirates' mightiest swordsman.
The exterior of the opened umbrella features a pattern of six logos such as the Straw Hat Gang's pirate flag, Zoro's own pirate flag, a steering wheel, a wave, and an anchor. The underside has the map of the pirates' journeys. Attached to the umbrella is a charm in the image of Zoro's earring. People who pre-order the umbrella will receive, while supplies last, a green wristband with Zoro's famous lines printed on it.
The umbrella costs 8,800 yen (about US$109) plus 630 yen (US$7.80) for shipping.

Update: Zoro's listed description as "Straw Hat Pirates' mightiest swordsman" corrected. Thanks, bunnyhopper.
