A tsurugi is a special weapon that is not normally generated. It exists to serve as the base item for the Tsurugi of Muramasa, though it is also possible to wish for an ordinary one. When unidentified, a tsurugi appears as a long samurai sword.
While the Tsurugi of Muramasa might be worth wishing for, if you want its chance of bisecting monsters, a non-artifact tsurugi is not worth a wish. Any role that is unrestricted in two-handed swords can also twoweapon, and there are weapon combinations that can do more damage than an ordinary tsurugi.
The tsurugi, also known as the long samurai sword, is an
extremely sharp, two-handed blade favored by the samurai.
It is made of hardened steel, and is manufactured using a
special process, causing it to never rust. The tsurugi is
rumored to be so sharp that it can occasionally cut
opponents in half!
