Akaviri Katana - Blades Sword Replacer
By Billyro


This mod replaces the Blades Sword with a new model. It was a pain in the arse, so enjoy.

  • The mod comes FOMOD ready with options for 2K or 4K textures, and a choice of 3 degrees of curvature (straight, slight curve, big curve).
  • There is no .esp, it's a pluginless replacer. It will be compatible with any mods that alter its stats in any way.
  • This mod does not replace the vanilla sword textures, ensuring other mods which use those are not affected.
  • The polycount is quite high because I wanted the grip to look accurate up close, but it shouldn't have any impact on regular gameplay.

Check it out on Sketchfab


Manual install: Download the mod manually; extract the files somewhere, then pick and choose one meshes folder and one textures folder to put in your Skyrim\Data folder.
