Flaming Kopis (フレイム・コビシュ Fureimu Kobishu?) is an item that appears in Sonic and the Black Knight. It is an unlockable weapon that can be equipped to and wielded by Sir Gawain.



Flaming Kopis is a pair of identical swords with a single edge. Each sword has a straight dark gray grip with a pointed sword pommel and a cross guard in the shape of a straight cup with a bar on each side, making the hilt resemble a torch. The blade on each sword is dark orange in color and resembles a tall and wide curved flame with a sharp edge on the front. Additionally, on the foot of each blade, there is a figure of a clawed hand grabbing tightly around the blade.
