Historically, Iaido is the genre of quickdraw techniques in quick respond to sudden attacks, considered to be a major Japanese martial art for *it's philosophical and spiritual aspects*.
Is that what the trivia is trying to say?

"Blacksteel", also known as "kurogane", was a form of black iron that was used for swords and armor, and was considered very strong due to its high carbon content. *the more you know theme*

Kurogane is also one of japanese words for iron in general.

And in real life, katanas are EXTREMELY durable, yet in DS2, they're some of the most brittle weapons in the game.

Yes, modern katanas are strong and sturdy. Since period katanas were made using bloom furnaces, the carbon content of the steel was actually pretty low. Smithing techniques used helped with strength and flexibility, but period katanas are nowhere close to as durable and flexible as

There are many common misconceptions about katanas forged in period katanas. Like “They fold it so many times, it makes it super strong!” No. Just no. They folded it as much as they did to remove impurities. After so many folds, any strengthening is useless. I’m not saying they were horrible swords, I’m just saying they were as strong as people make them out to be. Look up how they made katanas. You’ll really be surprised. Tons (literally) of material were used to even get enough steel to make one sword. Since bloom furnaces have to draw their carbon from whatever is around it, a bloom furnace actually produces impure and low carbon steel. There are plenty of people who tried only to find out it’s a lot of work, requires more material than I’m willing to pay for, came out with “good enough” steel. Traditional katanas are so expensive because it’s a very expensive and labor intensive process. The skill is great.

Too bad for you :)

So I see it's got really insane counter damage, but the base AR seems to be pretty weak and it's quite short for a katana. Am I missing something here or is this a bad weapon?
By Anonymous
#16130853
yeah i feel like it's overall a worse version of the berserker blade
By Anonymous
#16130857
i retract my words. I think it's actually pretty viable even compare to the berserker blade

I thought so too, but the scaling is REALLY good with 50 dex and 2 handed, it all adds up to some massive hits - I really enjoy the moveset too
