Forged of steel grafted from Umbra's flesh, this elegant nikana unites with its Warframe to form a single being of seething purpose.

Skiajati is Excalibur UmbraIcon272.png Excalibur Umbra's signature Katana.png Nikana. It was released in Update 23.0.

This weapon cannot be sold.

Acquisition[edit | edit source]

This weapon, along with Excalibur Umbra, is given during the penultimate mission of The Sacrifice at max rank, complete with a free weapon slot, a pre-installed Orokin Catalyst, and the mods Mod TT 20px.pngSacrificial Steel and Mod TT 20px.pngSacrificial Pressure fused to rank 5. A second Skiajati will not be given after replaying the quest.

Characteristics[edit | edit source]

This weapon deals primarily Slash b.svg Slash damage.



  • Low Puncture b.svg Puncture and Impact b.svg Impact damage – less effective against health and shields.
  • Innate two Umbra Pol.png polarities, due to no Conclave mods having the polarity.

Notes[edit | edit source]

  • All the mastery rank points that would normally be granted from ranking up the weapon will be automatically received upon acquiring it.
  • Despite its mastery rank of 11, players of lower ranks can acquire and use this weapon.
  • The cloth piece is a fixed part of the sheath and not a removable cosmetic.

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • Σκιά (Skia) is Greek for shadow, while जाति (Jati) is Sanskrit for birth.
    • This can either tie in to the sword's relationship with Excalibur Umbra, with Umbra being Latin for shadow, or to the weapon's passive ability to cloak its user.
  • The weapon utilizes a similar model to the shikomizue or jotō katana, best described as a swordstick or staff sword.
  • According to its Codex entry, the Skiajati is a normal Nikana "grafted" from Umbra's flesh.
