Maken (魔剣) are a type of weapon used by Exorcists.

Overview

Maken, or Demon Swords. If one accidentally becomes the owner of a Maken, it may end up killing them. To use one, a pact must be made in the same way a Tamer does with a Familiar.[1]

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.[2]

Of these types, Arthur A.Angel's Caliburn is a Possession type, while Shura's Fang is a Divine Protection type. Rin's Kurikara is a unique example which fits neither category.
