Katana detail.png

The katana was released as part of the Treasure Trails Expansion update on 12 June 2014. It can only be obtained as a very rare reward from elite clue scrolls. It requires 40 Attack to wield. Compared to a rune scimitar, the Katana has better defence stats, however has 4 fewer strength bonus, and is two handed, making the use of a defender or a shield in conjunction with it impossible.
