Katana detail.png

The katana is a two-handed weapon that can be obtained as a very rare reward from elite Treasure Trails. It requires 40 Attack to wield. Compared to a rune scimitar, while the Katana has better defensive stats, it has 4 less strength bonus and is two handed, making the use of a defender or a shield in conjunction with it impossible.
