Samurai swords

I saw a few kids in my neighbourhood playing sword-fighting and it brought back so much childhood memories. The kids i play with when i was young were mostly boys. Not many girls on the same street. So, i play whatever games they play. Swords, marbles, kites, guns, tops... all boys' games and toys.

Till now, i'm still very fascinated with swords. I watch a lot of Chinese Martial Arts and Japanese Samurai movies. And in almost every scene, you can see the heroes draw out a sword to defend themselves and kill off their enemies. Samurai swords are very elegant. They claim that if you were to slide a piece of paper across the samurai sword's sharp edge, it'll cut it in two easily.

Hand-crafted Samurai swords makes great display and gift items. And those that are sold at karatedepot.com are really really beautiful. I'm sure any sword-lover would like to keep one or even two in their homes.
