The Samurai Blade, known in Japan as Fencing: Little View (撃剣景丸 "Gekiken Keimaru"), is a Blade in Kid Icarus: Uprising. It is unique among blades in that it provides extra speed in exchange for ranged attack flaws. It's one of the few blades which actually resembles its own weapon type. It is a Katana that fires sonic slashes.

Idol description

The Samurai Blade is a powerful copy of a legendary sword whose curved blade was devastating in close combat. While this blade improves quickness, it has weaker ranged shots and takes time to charge.
