The Katana is a type of single-edged longsword indigenous to Japan. It first saw use during the Muramachi period of Japan's history, just prior to the rise of Oda Nobunaga. Since then, its decidedly impressive design and former status as a symbol of nobility has ingrained it into pop culture, leading to its production even in the modern day.
