"This is a resurrection of the Wakizashi, a backup sword used by the Samurai of Feudal Japan. Hand forged with 1055 Steel, it's another brutal contender in the melee weapons market. It has been modified to slice through physical resisting enemies, as well as a larger amount of enemies. Will slice through many enemies to come. Can also be used as a gun attachment."
The Kaizen Wakizashi is a high quality melee weapon manufactured by Kaizen Corp. It is generally a modified real life Wakizashi. Due to it's lightweight construction, it's ROF is quite high for a melee weapon, and the user will receive a relatively large speed boost if he/she is holding it. It's very easy to maintain this weapon, with cheap blade sharpenings and long edge duration.
This and it's real life counterpart were meant to be used as backup weapons in short range combat. The user's speed is greatly boosted if he/she holds it, making it a great weapon to hold if running away from hordes. This will also come in handy when your primary weapons are reloading, and you need to kill in a jiffy. Overall, it's a speed based backup weapon.
The attachment version also has a similar purpose.
