Adds the ability to craft:

  • Katana
  • Dai-Katana
  • Wakizashi
  • Tanto

You can craft them from: Steel, Dwarven, Elven, Orcish, Nordic, Glass, Ebony, Stalhrim, Daedric and Dragonbone.

You need the appropriate perks for each material found in the smithing skill tree.

  • Katanas are of speed 1.125 vs. regular sword speed of 1.000 with -1 to *base* damage.
  • Dai-Katanas are of speed 0.850 vs. regular great sword speed of 0.7000 with -1 to *base* damage.
  • Wakizashi are of speed 1.225 vs. regular sword speed of 1.000 with -2 *base* damage and -10% to reach.
  • Tanto are 1:1 to regular daggers except with reduced weight.

NOTE!, all the models use whatever textures you are using for your regular steel, daedric, dragonbone, nordic, orcish, dwarven, elven, glass, stalhrim and/or steel weapons. I highly recommend installing texture replacement mods or other HD texture packs. (SE has good texture quality, but daedric and glass are good choices to replace)

I personally used fallowing mods when taking the screenshots:

A bit of lore:

- The katana type weapons in TES originate from the very first game, and have been present in every game since but only in their Akaviri basic form after Morrowind. In Arena and Daggerfall, they came in all available materials, including mithril (which also has made it's last modern appearance in Oblivion).
- Because the Dai-Katana has been called that, and not Nodachi/Ódachi that is what I also call them, it is a tradition.
- The katana weapons of TES universe are the invention of the people of Tsaesci of Akavir.
