Samurai Sword 5:39 am-

So I bought a Samurai Sword. I’ve wanted one for many years now as I am a fan of Samurai movies. I did some research into the whole Samurai Sword thing and found out I don’t know dick about this stuff. The sword I bought is what real collectors call a wall-hanger and even worse it’s a cheap Highlander knockoff. I just like the look of a carved ivory handle and knew only of the Highlander movie sword.

As I said I don’t know dick about this stuff. Check out this page that gives an illustrated example of all the terms for the parts and features of a Samurai Sword. I really didn’t realize it was that complicated. I’ve also found that this stainless steel sword I’ve bought is not something you even want to take the chance on swinging around, let alone try to use it to cut something.

Well at least I now have a little knowledge on this subject matter. One of these days I will pick up a good sword. If you happen to be interested in any kind of swords be sure to check out the Sword Forum International, it is the place I have quickly learned about my junk knockoff sword I had bought. Also interesting is the Care & Handling of Japanese Swords as it explains how to take apart a real Samurai Sword and how to clean it.
