What is the Meaning of “穢殺刃” (Kegare Zappaa, けがれざっぱー) ?

To be honest, we are not very sure. It will be a strange, even dangerous name to put on a broom to clean the floor.

“穢” (Kegare, けがれ) is a kanji that means losing pureness or sacredness.
“殺” (Satsu/Zatsu, さつ/ざつ) is a kanji to kill a living creature with a purpose.
“刃” (Ha/Pa, は/ぱ) is the sharp edge/blade of the cutting divide.

If we translate this literally, it will mean “a broom that kills impureness with a blade” which might not be appropriate for a name for a broom.
