The katana is one of the seventeen sword types available to players in the game. It is produced at iron mongers. It is only usable by subscribers on subscription oceans.

The drop pattern for the katana allows for medium to large unhindered strikes to create severe problems for opponents, as the pattern can be almost impossible to clear. However, in practice it is an incredibly slow sword with dreadful sprinkles and small strikes and its pattern quickly degrades to the power level of a slightly better foil.


The pattern is very similar to that of the dadao.
