Tameshigiri (試し斬り, Test Cutting) is a basic Kendō technique meant to test the efficiency of the cutting power of a Zanpakutō.

Description

Originally invented by Raian as a training method for Shinigami taking their first steps to communicating better with their Zanpakutō (Shinkendō), it was introduced to Soul Society as a way to punish those who had been convicted of moderate-level crimes in the Seireitei. The user would test the sharpness of their Zanpakutō, and therefore, their soul, by testing a variety of basic cuts on the convicted criminal.
