Weapons of FFTA - Katanas by Bladedog Weapons of FFTA - Katanas by Bladedog
Page 9. I've been both looking forward to and dreading this page , but it seems to have come out all right. The tsuba(guard) for each one is to the right of it; the first two don't have one. I hope every one likes them! Comments are welcome!

I have to ask, how did you manage to find all the refs for these? Are they shown with this much detail in the game? I think Zanmato is my favorite out of this one, mostly cause it looks so huge, like a cleaver katana.

All that's shown in the game are tiny 15x15 pixel versions. These are my take on those. I suppose they count as refs, but it lets me be creative at the same time.

That's really neat, it's cool to be able to be expressive with them when they're so small.

lol I have to question the sanity of game developers. How exactly does an É;pée qualify as a Katana? Let's Wiki this.

The katana is characterized by its distinctive appearance: a curved, slender, single edged blade, circular or squared guard, and long grip to accommodate two hands. It has historically been associated with the samurai of feudal Japan, and has become renowned for its extraordinary sharpness and cutting ability, to the point that its purported cutting capabilities have reached mythical status.

The é;pée (pronounced /ˈɛ;peɪ/) is the modern derivative of the original duelling sword, the rapier, used in sport fencing. É;pée is French for "sword".

The weapon is similar to a foil (compared to a sabre), but has a stiffer blade that is V-shaped in cross-section, has a larger bell guard, and is heavier. The technique however, is somewhat different, as there are no rules regarding priority and right-of-way. In addition, the entire body area is a valid target area.

Silly translators...

A katanas guard tends to be the most unique part of it, so I felt I should draw them. I'm glad you like them.
