Katanas are exotic, elegant weapons thought to be from eastern Samarkand. In Albion, they are typically associated with assassins, and other fighters that prefer to deal death in a quick, silent, and graceful manner. It should be noted that the katanas in Fable are much shorter and thicker than the ones in Fable II, actually being shorter than the basic longsword. Also, standard katanas in Fable do more damage than any other light weapon, while they are less powerful in Fable II.
