Maken (魔剣) are a type of weapon used by Exorcists.
Maken tend to come in two varieties Possession and Divine Protection. Possession type Maken are those possessed by a demon allowing the weapon to fight demons. If the weapon is destroyed, the demon is exorcised. Divine Protection on the other hand is a weapon empowered by a contract with a demon. Destroying the weapon itself is meaningless, but it will lose power if the contracting demon is exorcised.
