an 3-4 foot long sword, simular to a katana.
a nodachi(also odachi and no-dachi) usually had no compassion sword.
generaly the last weapon a samari would use,(first bow, then yari) but thanks mainly to anime and manga it was largely overglorifyed.
the nodachi has no mistical powers you adult swim freaks!

A 4 foot long, incredibly curved sword of Asian decent. Hard to use, due to size, and weight, but can cut through many a material with little effort.
See Katana
