Katana (刀) is a traditional Japanese sword.

Description[edit | edit source]

Katanas were introduced into the New World by the Eight Greed Kings around five hundred years ago. To this day, they are looked upon as a popular item sought out by many warriors. The only place they are forged and produced is located in the fallen capital of the Eight Greed King's empire, Eryuentiu.

Appearance[edit | edit source]

Their appearance is exactly the same as the World of 2138's counterparts, with the standard long but thin blade and same standard hilt design.

Abilities[edit | edit source]

Despite being non-magical weapons, katanas are praised for their sharpness. The New World inhabitants hold them in high regard as they possess a superior cutting ability compared to ordinary magic weapons.[1]

Trivia[edit | edit source]
