Weapons List and Locations

OK, here is the complete list of weapons and where to find them. This is definitely not an exhaustive list, there are bound to be plenty of other places in which you can find these weapons, however these are where I first found them all.

A few notes:
-Weapons that are found on characters are unique and only found on that character.
-I will specify the difficulty on which I found the weapon. The nature of the game is that weapons can be found on a certain difficulty and anything higher, so if I have a weapon down as Hard, it can also be found on Instant Kill, but not on Normal or Easy. Also, if I don't specify a difficulty, that means you can find it on any difficulty.
-There are 4 NPC's in the game that you should watch out for. 'Suspicious Person' is a random npc who will randomly carry any weapon except for the character specific ones, so it is always worth killing him to see what he drops. 'Samurai Hunter' only seems to appear when you have high rep with all job brokers, he will carry any random Ninja Stance weapon. 'Yukino' (one of the potential partners) Appears on the bridge in Omiki from 18:00-00:00, she will carry a random spear, so it is possible to farm all spears from her (except character specific ones). 'Kirizo' appears in Omiki during the night time walking the roads, you will recognize him from his green robes and the beads around his neck, he will carry a random Draw Stance weapon and it is possible to farm them all from him (except character specific ones). You can save right next to Yukino in Omiki and every time you reload the weapons for bother Yukino and Kirizo will be randomized, allowign you plenty of reload opportunities if you choose to farm them for their weapons.
-In my experience, the best method for this game was to farm on Instant Kill during big battles such as the 'Kill 100' jobs. The tournament to join Fujimori is always an excellent one. Once you win, you start back at the entrance gate. Go back to the courtyard in front of Araragi's building and all the weapons dropped by your opponents are still there. Also, once you have joined Fujimori or Ouka, you can go around and kill their members for weapons and will often get a good selection. I DON'T recommend trying to farm during the battles at the end of the game as you never get chance to stop and investigate what weapons have been dropped.
-Some of these weapons can only be found on Partners. Details on how to trigger each necessary Partner is below the weapons list.

Ninja Stance
(Remember, the random enemy called ‘Samurai Hunter’ will carry any of these. He only seems to appear when you high reputation will all job brokers. He looks like one of the Biwa players but will actually be walking around and following you).

Sayoshigure
Syuzen. Misae’s ‘Assassinate Lord Shuzen’ job. This is the standard weapon.

Kizume
Ninjas. Hard. Rare. Get the job ‘Fujimori’s Ninja’s’ from Kiyonari. The 3 Ninjas occasionally carry it.

Kuzu-no-ha
Koharu. You will find Koharu in Omiki by the onion patch, she is hiding in a corner. Also dropped by Ninjas in ‘Fujimori’s Ninja’s’ Job. Hard.

Yume-kochou
Koharu.

Yagarasu
Ouka Leader. During the supplies mission you get from Shinnosuke, the leader will sometimes carry this. Also occasionally carried by Koharu and the Ninjas from ‘Fujimori’s Ninja’s’. Hard. Rare.

Muramasa
Otome (Partner).

Kuro-tonbo
Kirie.

Zangetsu
Kirie replacement. Occasionally you may come across a unique looking Fujimori General with a random name in places where you would usually find Kirie, he will carry this. The best time to get this is when going for one of the ‘With Shuzen’ endings. You will have an inkling where you talk to Kirie and tell him too attack the bandits. If you make sure to kill Kirie at your first opportunity, then either pay or complete the ‘Kill 100’ mission from Kiyonari, you can still work towards one of these endings, and when you get to this particular inkling, you will find Kirie’s replacement instead. Kill him and the weapon is yours. Hard.

Ukigumo-kodachi
Koharu. Instant Kill.

Kurotaka
Zaji. If you do all the inklings in The Road correctly, during one of the night time ones you will be attacked by Zaji. Defeat him and he will drop this. Follow the guide for ending 21 “Undercover” and you will definitely get this.


Spear Stance
(Remember, Yukino appears in Omiki between 18:00-00:00 and she can carry any of the spears except for Rasetsunyo)

Houzuki
Kuchihagahara. On the ground inside the tent.

Masai
Fujimori Guards. Normal.

Sazanka
Fujimori Guards.

Kotobuki-Taisha
Fujimori Guards. Hard.

Mikazuki
Fujimori Guards. Ronin. Hard.

Jakou
Ouka Clansmen. Hard. Seems to drop more frequently during the ‘With Shuzen’ endings. When you return to Amana for the final time, you will immediately enter battle with waves of Ouka Clansmen, they often carry them at this point, and you get time to search around the weapons after you beat them all.

Rasetsunyo
Yuma.

Endou
Yukino. Instant Kill. Can also drop during large battles on Instant Kill, but I would recommend farming it off Yukino instead.

Bamboo Spear
Villagers. One always drops during the battle to join Fujimori.

Long Green Onion
Villagers. Omiki onion patch. One always drops during the battle to join Fujimori.

Broom
Villagers. There is always a person sweeping at one end of the Posting Station for you to farm this off.


Partners
You don’t need to get the partners to join you, just for them to appear then you can kill them and take their weapon. For that reason, I'm not going to list how to get the partners to join you. You only need one for the achievement and that is already explained in the achievement guide.
 
Dona
Posting Station from 06:00-12:00. After day 30.

Nyanya
Guard Gate from 09:00-15:00. You need to find the 4 cats littered throughout the game and apologize to each one for about 90 seconds, at which point they will start following you around. You know when you’re successfully apologizing as the cat will start rolling on it’s back, when you see that for the first time, start your 90 second count and you should be fine.
The 4 cats appear in The road, Amana, Omiki and Takatane. They can be anywhere, and will not always spawn, so check for them during daylight hours. Once you have the cat following you, feel free to fast travel to the next location, you’ll never need to find that one again.
You will recognize Nyanya as she wears the cat accessories and carries a big fish on her belt (as you do).

Kasumi
Omiki between 12:00-18:00. You first need to gain maximum reputation (600 yen per job) with all 4 job brokers before she will appear.
 
Ensen
Guard Gate from 18:00-00:00. You need to get at least 1000 kills in one playthrough before he will spawn.

Osada
Omiki between 20:00-02:00. You need to have low trust with all job brokers (kill about 4 people in all 4 areas), then, when she appears (in the same building you go to during Misae’s ‘Assassinate lord Shuzen’ job).

Otome
The Road between 06:00-12:00. After day 15 go to The Road and she is usually standing behind a fence next to the road coming from Amana (Old lady character).

Yukino
Omiki between 18:00-00:00. You need to have completed about a half dozen inklings before she will appear.

Yes, you need them all as each weapon has at least one unique skill you need to learn.

Question...is there any chance that you can get a moderate blade someplace else in the game?
