After the onset of the outbreak, Michonne claimed to have found a katana upon which she honed her survival skills to perfection as a result of encountering and killing walkers day-by-day.
The Katana is mainly used by Michonne as it is her signature weapon. The Katana is seen from Issue 19 all the way to the present issue being effective in cutting up and chopping off parts of a zombie. Though it is instantly recognizable as Michonne’s signature weapon for defending herself and threats to her group, it has ironically twice been used to kill good people and friends; once when the Governor decapitates Herschel Greene and when Pete Anderson slices Reg Monroe’s throat by mistake.
Historically, a Katana were one of the traditionally made Japanese swords that were worn by the samurai class of feudal Japan, also commonly referred to as a “samurai sword”. Modern versions of the Katana are sometimes made using non-traditional materials and methods.
The Katana is characterized by its distinctive appearance: a curved, slender, single-edged blade with a circular or squared guard and long grip to accommodate two hands. It has historically been associated with the samurai of feudal Japan, and has become renowned for its sharpness and strength.
