How to unlock a sword in Project Slayers
In order to obtain a sword, or katana, in Project Slayers, you'll need purchase it from Jeph for around 2000 Wen, depending on how many/which version you want. Jeph can be found in Jeph's Layer in the beginning town, Kiribating Village, which is pictured below.
To the right of Jeph are two katanas, one green and one gold. The Green Katana can be purchased for 500 Wen and the Gold Katana can be purchased for 1,069 Wen.
As it can be assumed from their price differences, the Green Katana offers no stat changes/boosts, whereas the Gold Katana offers a 1.35x Item Health boost and +1 Sword.
