I get it. You're trying to steer people away from using this awesome weapon. Because it is awesome. It's got the poke game of all katanas, good range(for a katana), some bleed, and two useful WAs. Breakage shouldn't be a problem if you aren't wailing away on greatshields, and if it does break, switch to your offhand and use repair powder when you get a chance. The best Katana imo.
