About this mod

Insanity's Katana, Tanto and Belt - CBBE, AE and Visible Weapons support.

Permissions and credits
I don't care if you think the swords should be called something else. Nor do I care which way you think the scabbards should be orientated. They're named after and based off of the original models, that's all.


This mod adds several additional features to Insanity's Celtic Katana and the belt scabbard for it added with Armorsmith Extended.

  • Combines the tanto scabbard with the katana scabbard belt (see pictures),
  • adds katana and tanto as armor items that can either be attached to the scabbard belt or held in the left hand and,
  • adds support for the Visible Weapons - 3rd Person Holster so you can actually unsheath your blades of death!

Shouldn't conflict with any mod that I can think of, although the handheld scabbards will not play nicely with anything that adds a mesh to your left hand. The mod uses slots 56, 57, 58 and 59 so anything in those slots may get unequipped.

Does not modify either Insanity's Katana or Armorsmith Extended, adds new meshes and a texture but otherwise uses the existing textures from both mods.



Download via NMM and activate.or download zip and install via NMM.


Unpack zip file into \Data folder, usually C:\Program Files (x86)\Fallout 4\.


Check out the video in the videos tab of this page for a more detailed guide on how to get the items and configure them to work with Visible Weapons. Audio quality is not good. Someone remake it with better audio for me? :(

The new belt, katanas, tantos and scabbards should be creatable via the Armorsmith Bench but can also be found via the console. You will need to equip the scabbard(s) along with the required swords for it to look and work correctly.

If you want to use the belt scabbard you will also need to equip the hip katana and hip tanto pieces too, otherwise you'll have an empty scabbard. The same applies to the handheld scabbards.

Note: The handheld scabbards use the same slot, so you either use the katana scabbard or the tanto scabbard, you cannot use both. 'Cos that'd look stupid. You also cannot use the belt and handheld scabbards together, again 'cos it'd be odd.

To make this work with Visible Weapons - 3rd Person Holster;

  1. equip katana weapon,
  2. equip katana armor item,
  3. go to aid
  4. use "Visible Weapons Config,"
  5. select "Link current weapon"
  6. unequip and re-equip katana armor

You should get a message confirming the link.

Repeat for tanto using the tanto armor item if you wish to have both weapons linked.
