Katanas are traditional Japanese longswords with sharp, thin and strong blades, with the same attack speed and reach as the longsword. They are noticeably lighter, however, giving them a higher damage-to-weight ratio.

OblivionEdit

KatanaEdit

There are three types of katanas in Cyrodiil:

  • Ruined Akaviri Katanas can be found off of dead Akaviri soldiers at Serpent's Trail inside the fort at Pale Pass. They are weaker than the Akaviri Katana.
  • The Akaviri Katana wielded by members of the Blades is by far the most common. If the Blades are joined after escorting Martin and Jauffre to Cloud Ruler Temple, an Akaviri Katana will be rewarded.

    Akaviri Katana

    • It is possible to obtain one by looting the corpses of dead Blades, which are scattered in a few select places around Cyrodiil.
    • There are also plenty of Akaviri Katanas available, free of charge and bounty, in the west wing Barracks and Armory of Cloud Ruler Temple, If the Blades are joined.
    • Three Akaviri Katanas can also be found in a Very Hard Display Case in Castle Bruma.
    • They can also be found at the Temple of the Ancestor Moths.
  • The Ancient Akaviri Katana is a rare katana only obtained from Sancre Tor, an ancient ruin that must be infiltrated as part of the Main Questline. It is also unique in that it can damage ghosts and wraiths, unlike normal weapons.

Dai-katana Edit

Dai-katanas are long, slender two-handed swords, which are generally stronger and have the same attack speed and reach as a standard longsword or the standard katana.

Historically, katana were one of the traditionally made Japanese Swords Nihonto that were worn by the Samurai class of feudal Japan, also commonly referred to as a "samurai sword".Modern versions of the katana are sometimes made using non-traditional materials and methods.The katana is characterized by its distinctive appearance: a curved, slender, single-edged blade with a circular or squared guard and long grip to accommodate two hands. It has historically been associated with the samurai of feudal Japan and has become renowned for its sharpness and strength.

SkyrimEdit

In The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim, the Blades still use a katana of Akaviri design, called the Blades Sword. Another three enchanted variants of the Blades Sword can be found named Bolar's Oathblade, Dragonbane, and Harkon's Sword, respectively. Additionally, the player can find the Ebony Blade, a Daedric artifact that resembles the Akaviri dai-katana and is wielded in two hands.
