Default What is Ichigo's Shikai?

Well I'm still a bit mystified after when Ichigo learnt his zanpaktou's name and its form changed, i thought that form was Zangetsu's real form, then there was shikai and bankai on top, so to clear things up, what is Ichigo's Shikai?
OK Sorry about this... seems my search didnt find a similar thread.... close whenever you like

Ichigos shikai is what he carries around all the time he can't sheath it cause is to powerful. So it is stuck in that form unless he goes bankai. He lost the ability to seal his zanpaktou's power when he learned zangetsu's name.

He's always in Shikai, he has a "constant release" type Zanpaktou like

i agree he has a released type soulslayer, but kenpachi does'nt have one. his is a normal one.
when he fought with ikkaku in the flashback he had it. which means it's just a normal sword that he had befpre being a deathgod
at least now, I know that you can die by my blade...That's more than enough

Is in full shikai all the time just like Ichigo due to their sprit pressure.
Their Zanpakuto's are forced into their second state. Trust me its fact. Now what i thin kthe guy wants to know is what is his shikai? Well ichigo's shikai is a huge blade with no hilt which kinda tells me that it is ment for thrashing and destructive power. it is not ment for defensive combat. Which is why ichigo gets beat up in shikai alot. But when he switches to bankai his sword shrinks and evolves a hilt while he gains speed which is kind of a defenseive bankai. so i would say his shikai is mainly there for cutting power. Personally i think that when ichigo uses his resolve in shikai his cutting power is stronger than in bankai. which is why he could cut zaraki but not Aizen

Well, there also could be a possibility that it was also influenced that way by destroying Zangetsu's original form.
As you can remember, it was totally destroyed by Urahara.

ichigos zanpaktou is like zaraki's but not because can never release his which is why his division is not allowed to use bankai because they are supposed to fight with just pure strenght, where as ichigos is just always released but he can never seal it into just a sword, i think is has alot to do with his reiatsu

ichigo's shikai is the big black cleaver that he always carries with him, on his back covered in cloth. his technque is the same throughout his shikai and bankai (gatsuga tenshou) he can't control his reiatsu and therefore cannot seal his zanpakto into a regular katana.

Zangetsu was broken and couldn't find other piece. So Ichigo had to keep his Zanpaktou in shikai or bankai. if he didn't have his shikai he'd just have the hilt.
