michonne-katana-the-walking-dead

The Walking Dead has a pretty ecletric variety of weapons, there’s Rick’s .357 Colt Python, and fan favorite Daryl Dixon’s crossbow. Probably the most  iconic weapon from The Walking Dead TV show as well as the comics, is Michonne’s Katana. The current lead female bad ass in the series makes use of the ancient Samurai weapon to dispatch walkers in silence, a key to survival in the world of The Walking Dead.

But who makes Michonne’s katana in The Walking Dead? It’s definitely not an off the shelf Katana from your local swap meet. It was actually made by Ollin Sword Design in collaboration with Kit Rae and The Walking Dead prop master John Sanders.

EDIT: You can get a limited edition replica of Michonne’s Katana here from Amazon.
