You must have a Katana skill of at least 250 and be at least level 72 to begin this quest. If you're ready to accept the mission, head to Norg and speak with Ryoma.
He will hand you a key item as well as a katana, the Kodachi of Trials. He instructs you to master the katana by weakening it's powers, which roughly means you need to remove the latent effect off of it by participating in skillchains and performing weapon skills. The number of SCs and WSs you need to do before the sword is sufficiently weakened goes by a strict point-based system:
Solo-WS or opening any level SC: 1 pt.
Close LVL1 SC: 2 pt.
Close LVL2 SC: 3 pt.
Close LVL3 SC: 5 pt.
- Total Needed: 300 pt.
Participate in SCs until you've accumulated enough points for the latent effects on the Kodachi of Trials to dissappear. (Note: the text on the item description will remain, but the effects will expire)
After the latent effects are off of the Kodachi of Trials, return to Ryoma and trade him the blade. He will hand you yet another key item and tell you to proceed to the Labyrinth of Onzozo.
Head to (I-5) and touch the ??? there. An NM crab named Megapod Megalops will appear. Defeat him. Once he is dead, check the ??? again to receive yet another key item.
Now head back to Norg and speak w/ Ryoma again. After a short cutscene, you will receive your long-awaited prize: Blade: Ku!
