Regards to Trivia[edit]

Is this section really necessary? If should stay, then I can say "Gothic Swords" were used by Medieval German warriors, Dadao swords were used by Ancient Chinese warriors, Long Swords were used by Medieval Nobles etc...Swordfish56 23:45, 16 November 2008 (UTC)

Dadao swords already have a trivia about the meaning of the name, so since Katana aren't just <adjective> Sword, I think that it should be there. Katana isn't an english word, you know? Long swords are long and Gothic swords were used by the Goths... And both names are english. Paddymew 11:54, 2 May 2009 (UTC)

I might be biased, but I think we should have real-world trivia on ALL swords that relate to a real-world counterpart. Trivia is probably the most interesting part of any article here, and makes the smaller pages more worth visiting. Hail and Kill! 15:24, 7 July 2009 (UTC)

Drop Color[edit]

Does it only drop in white and blue?
or does it drop in the full range, white -> gold, like other items?
I've only ever had white ones drop, and blue from weapsmiths -- StimpsonJKat 02:58, 29 June 2009 (UTC)

Got a gold not that long ago. RandomJF 11:04, 15 July 2009 (UTC)
Got a gold inscribable from UW end chest today.
I bought a gold inscribable one from another player. Still wish Anet would add samurai armor. Ramei Arashi 15:53, 17 November 2009 (UTC)

Blasphemy[edit]

Did anybody else notice that they mutilated the best sword ever made? Some weird knot at the end of the hilt, and the awful golden thingy at the bottom of the blade... That's just not what a katana looks like; even the ninjato looks better :S Seigibushi 11:26, 23 July 2009 (UTC)

Indeed. Tengu sword looks more like a katana.--Graahk 20:11, 28 July 2009 (UTC)

"Best sword ever made"...I'm really tired of weaboos saying this about katanas when it's blatantly not true. But I agree, a more traditional look would have been better.--DTaurelion 14:17, 31 October 2011 (UTC)

Expensive?[edit]

I just bought a gold req9 Insc Katana for 25k. Is this the current prices for the rare gold ones (perfect)? --Leet Tankur 03:44, 8 December 2009 (UTC)

Oops...[edit]

I was trying to add a drop to the observed drops list and for some reason the table moved to the bottom... Can someone fix it? because I'm afraid to try. :\ 71.199.10.77 07:41, 22 December 2009 (UTC)

Nevermind, figured it out :P 71.199.10.77 07:50, 22 December 2009 (UTC)
