Even against chainmail, a katana would be fucking useless.
Also, there plenty of swords designed for fighting armoured foes.

Will angled steel plate deflect 9mm? I dont think chain will do much but Ive heard wood has good stopping capabilities and he might have a wooden shield.

>Even against chainmail,
The Japanese had mail armor. You can thrust through mail.

>there plenty of swords designed for fighting armoured foes.
Do you want me to post a smug reaction image so badly? Just because a sword is designed to deal with plate, doesn't mean it's good at it.
In a medieval context, what you really wanted before facing plate armored opponents was plate armor, a proper percussion weapon and a dagger.
In modern context, again, get yourself a gun.

You mean the chinese factory machine that stamped it out. In that case itd be named after its serial number which is pretty edgy desu

Yes, and the katana is not a good thrusting weapon.
That's why they used shit like spears most of the time.

Swords are weapons too. Most countries that limit the carrying of firearms also limit the size of your blades.

>the katana is not a good thrusting weapon.
True. It will do the job, but it might take so long that they gut you first. Though again, most of the time you will not meet anyone in anything resembling armor.

Basing your choice of weapon on the off chance that you might meet somebody in armor when most people don't is stupid.
Specialized thrusting weapons are shit against multiple opponents.
Guess what you are more likely to meet wherever you live. 1 guy in mail armor, or 2 guys without mail armor?

Spears are a battlefield weapon. They work very well in a group.
If you were going solo against an armoured enemy, you would want some sort of pointy dagger. Maybe a rondel or something?

You're just unprepared.

Call it something like. "my wallet" or "my money" and then when people try and mug you (because you look like a fat fuck easy target) you can just say "ok let me get my wallet out" and then you slash, vertically bisecting them

Name it
"That's it. I'm sick of all this "Masterwork Bastard Sword" bullshit that's going on in the d20 system right now. Katanas deserve much better than that. Much, much better than that.
I should know what I'm talking about. I myself commissioned a genuine katana in Japan for 2,400,000 Yen (that's about $20,000) and have been practicing with it for almost 2 years now. I can even cut slabs of solid steel with my katana.

Japanese smiths spend years working on a single katana and fold it up to a million times to produce the finest blades known to mankind.

Katanas are thrice as sharp as European swords and thrice as hard for that matter too. Anything a longsword can cut through, a katana can cut through better. I'm pretty sure a katana could easily bisect a knight wearing full plate with a simple vertical slash.

Ever wonder why medieval Europe never bothered conquering Japan? That's right, they were too scared to fight the disciplined Samurai and their katanas of destruction. Even in World War II, American soldiers targeted the men with the katanas first because their killing power was feared and respected.

So what am I saying? Katanas are simply the best sword that the world has ever seen, and thus, require better stats in the d20 system. Here is the stat block I propose for Katanas:

(One-Handed Exotic Weapon)
1d12 Damage
19-20 x4 Crit
+2 to hit and damage
Counts as Masterwork

(Two-Handed Exotic Weapon)
2d10 Damage
17-20 x4 Crit
+5 to hit and damage
Counts as Masterwork

Now that seems a lot more representative of the cutting power of Katanas in real life, don't you think?

tl;dr = Katanas need to do more damage in d20, see my new stat block."
