(Redirected from Blade (Vibro-katana))


The Vibrokatana, introduced in 2450 by the Draconis Combine,[1] is a weapon of choice often used by DEST commandos in close combat. A deadly and elegant weapon, it operates on the same principle as the Vibrosword, with the blade vibrating at an extremely high frequency.[2] Since its introduction, the vibrokatana has gained popularity with other Draconis Combine Mustered Soldiery units as it is stunningly effective even against battle armor.[3]
