Background InformationEdit

  • In the West, "Katana" is the word applied to most forms of single-edged blade in Japan. It properly refers to a very specific type of backsword, a curved, slender, single-edged blade with a circular or squared guard and long grip to accommodate two hands. There are several other types of Japanese sword.
  • It is also worth nothing that it was whilst trying to first retrieve the Katana when Xena recieved her notable scar of her right breast.
