How to Get Katana Skin in Ghost of Tsushima

Although in Ghost of Tsushima, you can only use a katana as a melee weapon. It does not mean that there is only one model available. It is possible to get skins to change the appearance of your sword.

Although there is no difference apart from the aesthetics between them. There will be no attack bonuses or special effects. It is plain and simple decorative.

To change the katana skin, simply go to Equipment> Sakai Steel and press X when you see “Sword Options” when hovering over the katana or tanto. A menu will open with all available katana skins, and you can equip the one you want.

Now that you do not have problems, here we are going to explain how to get skins for the katana:

  1. Find the pillars of honor: You will get a skin for each Pillar of Honor you investigate.
  2. Any of the merchants in the villages, towns, and settlements sell sword skins in exchange for flowers. All merchants sell the same skins.
  3. By completing certain missions: When completing some missions, both primary and secondary, the reward can be Sword Kit.

  1. Some of these weapons are incredibly effective for assassinations. The thing I’ve found out so far with Ghost of Tsushima is that you have to know you’re going to spend time on side missions if you want to get your Legend up and weapons to a certain extent. The good thing is that the side missions are fun and aren’t repetitive.
