Notes
A remarkably powerful end-game Katana which has unrivaled damage among all piercing Katanas except Valor, which will always comfortably outdamage it. However, when taking into consideration the Attack reduction proc from Valor, Kusanagi will outdamage it until 46 defense, which makes the Kusanagi generally better if you get put in combat often.

The Enforcer outdamages Kusanagi up to 100/106 DEF, assuming both shots hit, while the Celestial Blade will always outdamage Kusanagi due to its superior maximum damage and tighter damage range. Despite boasting superior damage, these UT Katanas do not pierce through enemies - or, in the case of Celestial, have an inconvenient shot pattern - allowing Kusanagi to stay relevant when crowd-control is needed.

History
In Exalt Version 1.0.0.0 (July 2020), the item was released as a drop from Oryx the Mad God 3, along with the other T14 weapons, T7 abilities, and T15 armor.

Before Exalt Version 2.3.0.0 (Mar 2022), this item dealt 165-210 damage and had a 7% XP bonus.

Trivia
The T14 katana, which was previously unobtainable, was added to the game in Patch X.16.0 (Aug 2017), but the katana and projectile sprites were made black squares to reflect the item’s status as unreleased.

The Realm Eye says:
Incredible that a mortal would know of such a weapon. Very well, I shall tell you what I know.
The eastern realms are united under the icon of this katana, which has long been accounted in legend as a powerful weapon whose swings control the wind and can slay the immortal.
It was gifted from the heavens unto mortals for some unknown purpose, but I can say that those who are unworthy of even seeing this gift may be stricken from life by divine judgment.
