Shouldn't this be merged with sword?. After all, it's not a type of sword (like claymore or rapier), it's a feature. Having this article feels like having an article on neutronium hull (TOS: "The Doomsday Machine") or warp five starship (mentioned many times in ENT). -- Capricorn 04:23, 22 May 2009 (UTC)

In that case we should change this to an article on the katana type, even though Sulu's sword was missing the slight curve to the blade. Archduk3 04:23, 23 May 2009 (UTC)
