The golden katana is an item distributed to certain players starting on 22 July 2012. Like the Ornate katana, it had the same stats as a bronze 2h sword, but the attack styles of a longsword. The Golden katana was obtained by purchasing 90 or 180 days of membership from Amazon.com after linking your RuneScape and Amazon accounts. It is now also obtainable by redeeming a Premier Club reward token.
This katana is almost identical in every aspect to a bronze 2h sword, other than appearance and wielding stance.
This katana, the ornate katana, the auspicious katana, the Eastern outfit, the quick-fire crossbow, and the Wushanko outfit were the only known items to have come from the Eastern Lands until the release of Player-owned ports.
