It comes with a full set of animations, including guard, kicks, high, low and roundhouse blows and drawing from back & hip. It's C: SI (Combat: Samurai Island) compatible.

A good start might be a trip to the C: SI store 
where you can buy Musashi blades or other brands of Japanese weapon (the Archatek Naginata is interesting if you want to try something a little different).

eta: I just remembered that "Sadistic Hacker" have a freebie pack of katana poses at their store; good for action photography.

Kzah, thank you so much-- I'm at Combat: SI right now and it looks like they have some nice blades-- as well as AOs. Do the Musashi swords fit female avis pretty well? and/or can be resized? That's always been one of my biggest peeves with blades in SL.

Thank you also for the Sadistic Hacker tip (lol, mmk that sounded odd) -- I'm headed over there right now. :)

My Musashi blade is a rather oversized for my 5' 9" avatar, something like 130% scale. It probably looks perfect for the typical 7' plus SL av. It's also no-mod. I've not tried any others apart from the naginata I mentioned, which is probably a bit over scale but isn't so noticeable.

Aren't you cold in that snow?!

*hands you a really long fixin' list and bats her lashes*

haha, nah, not bad, and with that list,  be plenty warm by keeping moving.    Got anything cooking?  Be back with this list done in a flash.

Ooo, I love this! I'm sort of conflicted on whether I would or wouldn't want to meet you on a dark night, Kelli.
:D

Does that katana come with any good animations in it? I've been out of the loop on SL weaponry for ages, but I'd like to make a combat film sometime maybe now that I'm on a better connection. Maybe you or Caitlin have some suggestions?


Really nice photo :)

You cannot resize or modify any of the C:si swords. The Ronin Katana Kelli was wearing on the picture is quite big, for a female perhaps, but it never bothered me (as a fighter I was not interested in its looks, but only in the combat :)). If you go for looks, than an Archatek (any of them) is smaller, specially the blood drinkers (although they are 'specials' and not really used or popular in serious fights). I never wear the sheath on my avatar, but as a HUD on my screen, to minimize prims and lag, as do most fighters, I guess thats why the size /looks doesnt really matter in this case :).

Thanks for this, Caitlin. I'm primarily interested in aesthetics for use in film & photography-- well, that and I'm completely non-competetive; prone to politely accomodating people's desires to off me. :} I'll check out the Archatek swords though, and maybe cam-stalk some peeps at combat sims to see what the cool kids are using to kill each other these days.

Thank you! ;)
