Requires the FREE content pack "Saints & Seducers"

If you are unable to use Saints & Seducers, download the:
Katana Crafting - No Creation Club Patch

Adds the ability to craft:

  • Katana
  • Dai-Katana
  • Wakizashi
  • Tanto

You can craft them in:

Steel, Silver, Dwarven, Elven, Orcish, Nordic, Glass, Ebony, Stalhrim, Daedric, Dragonbone, Dawnguard, Volkihar, Amber, Madness, Golden, Dark & Spectral -style.

Crafting requirements are the same as vanilla Skyrim for each material.

Technical details:


  • 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.

Critical Damage value of the weapons is not lower, only base damage. Some variants have higher critical damage than their regular sword counter parts.
(Base dame e.g.: a (non tempered) Steel sword has base damage of 8, a Daedric Sword has 14)

  • Katanas are classified as 1-handed swords.
  • Dai-Katanas are classified as 2-handed swords.
  • Wakizashis are classified as 1-handed swords.
  • Tantos are classified as daggers.

Dawnguard variants are unlocked with Advanced Armors -perk.

Volkihar variants require Steel Smithing and being a Vampire.
(Enchanted "Bloodforged" -variants require Arcane Blacksmith in addition.)

Spectral Variants require Arcane Blacksmith -perk.


All the models use whatever textures you are using for your regular weapon variants!

I highly recommend installing texture replacement mods or other HD texture packs.

I personally recommend/use the ones below:

Daedric Armor and Weapon Improvement for Daedric.

Frankly HD Dragonbone and Dragonscale - Armor and Weapons for Dragonbone.

aMidianBorn Book of Silence SE for everything else.

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.
