These swords are made in the style of 7th century jian double-edged straight swords. Produced by the People's Liberation Army specifically for use by its officers and issued in the Sino-American War, many were captured and came to the American home front as souvenirs; some even found their way into fifth columnist hands. Since the Great War, these weapons have become an uncommonly used weapon by wastelanders and raiders alike.

A katana is a type of Japanese sword with a blade length greater than 23.6-28.7 inches (60-73 centimeters) and characterized by its distinctive appearance: a curved, slender, single-edged blade, circular or squared guard and long grip that can accommodate two hands. Often called a "samurai sword" or "samurai's sword" because of its use by the feudal warriors, it became a symbol of the samurai caste.

Renowned for its sharpness and cutting ability, its origins go back at least as far as the Kamakura Period (1185–1333). Most often held with two hands, some techniques and combat styles were performed with a one-handed grip. The katana was generally carried in a saya, or scabbard, manufactured from lightweight wood, with a coat of lacquer on the exterior and a wooden knob on one side for attaching a braided cord.

Revolutionary sword

Gameplay article: Fallout 2

A wakizashi is a type of Japanese sword with a blade length between 30 and 60 centimeters (12 and 24 inches), similar to but shorter than a katana. The wakizashi is usually not a primary weapon for samurai and was often worn together with the katana. The pairing of a katana with a wakizashi is called the daishō. However, by 2241, the Yakuza gangs ignore this tradition and instead use it as a primary weapon.

  1. Fallout: The Roleplaying Game Rulebook p. 112: "Swords have been in use for almost as long as wars have been fought and remained widespread as symbols of status and prestige amongst soldiers—particularly officers—across the world right up until the Great War. Many of the swords found in the wastelands are those used by Chinese officers during the Great War, often taken from battlefields as a trophy by American troops. Others are museum pieces or replicas from private collections, with many resembling the cavalry sabers used during the American Revolution."
