The Kaenken Rekka (火炎剣烈火[カエンケンレッカ] lit. "Flame Sword Raging Fire") is the transformation device and personal weapon of Kamen Rider Saber.

Design

The Kaenken Rekka is composed of the following parts:

  • Seiken Swordbody[1] (聖剣ソード本体 Seiken Sōdohontai): The base of the sword.
  • Sword Grip (ソードグリップ Sōdo Gurippu): The handle.
  • Rekka Trigger (レッカトリガー Rekka Torigā): The trigger. It assists in initializing Rider Finishers.
  • Kaenken Rekka Emblem (火炎剣烈火エンブレム Kaenken Rekka Enburemu, lit. Flame Sword Raging Fire Emblem): The source of Rekka's flames.
  • Hiburizin (ヒブリジン Hiburijin, lit. Fire-swing Blade): The blade section. Being forged by holy flames over the frost of stars, the blade has the ability to generate flames to increase its striking power.
  • Rekka Soul (レッカソウル Rekka Sōru): The blade's base. With the wisdom blade, the user can learn and embody all the traditions written in the Wonder Ride Book from the Seiken Swordriver and the "Shingan Reader".
  • Shingan Reader (シンガンリーダー Shingan Rīdā): The reading device at the tip of the blade. By contacting the special speed-reading metal fitting Spireader on the back cover of the Wonder Ride Book, the user can read with speed. As a result, it becomes possible to temporarily hold all the power of the Wonder Ride Book's tale in the Seiken.

Functionality

Transformation

To transform, the user inserts one to three Wonder Ride Books into the corresponding slots on the belt and pulls out the sword.

When transforming into his base form, Brave Dragon, Saber appears in a library surrounded by flames. He performs two slashes in the form of an 'X' before a dragon released from the Wonder Ride Book circles him and forms armor, with the slashes forming the visor, completing the transformation. Transforming with more than one Wonder Ride Book results in other constructs being released from the additional books and forming special armor around the corresponding section of the body.

Finisher

There are five ways to activate a finisher with the Kaenken Rekka:

  2. Pulling the trigger on the sword and pulling it out.
  3. Scanning up to three Wonder Ride Books on the sword's tip and pulling the trigger.
  4. Docking the sword into the left-hand Hissatsuholder, pulling the trigger, and pulling it back out.
  5. Scanning the Dragon Booster or King Lion Booster on the sword's tip and pulling the trigger.
