I guess I'll jump back in and rile everyone up..
It's def not a Katana.. and I should know.
I have a sword collection and I've trained in Martial Arts with all kinds of diff blades and weapons. Look at the hilt of the sword. (Handle) it is not curved in the same fashion as a Katana. This is a "Chinese Broadsword" otherwise known as a Dao.
And again, take a look at the shape of the blade.
The width of a Katana's blade does not greatly vary and get thicker to thinner except for at the very point.
A Dao does. A Scimitar or Sabre does. NOT a Katana..
Annnnd let the flaming begin..!!
