    Nothing Like A Sword

    You know, I started liking swords at a very young age, I made wooden ones and my friends and I would fight with them, until my mother took them all away... yah that sucked... a lot. A few years later I made a friend who did sparring with all kinds of wooden swords and...

    400 Year Old Wakizashi

      When I was in my 30s I did a favor for a friend. His Daughter had a problem that I made go away.   I did it in part because her father is my friend. I don’t live by society’s rule but my own sense of right and wrong. My rule is to help a friend if I can...

    My Father's Talent

    I inherited not only my father's swords and books, but his love for them. When I was born, my father had a special weapon forged for me at a blacksmith in Massachusetts, and he brought it specially to Bear Creek. It's a beautiful weapon, a broadsword that is well balanced and...

    I Have One Of My Own

    It's about a 3ft. long low carbon steel katana. I love it and it's my weapon of choice. I have yet to clean my blood off of it but that's a different story for a different group.

    I Want To Defend My Love Ones

    Swords are known for cutting, slicing its way through wood and flesh, both being objects of life. However, being a sort of pacifist, I would prefer mastering a sword of any design, to protect others. I wish to use its blade to defend evil from what I love, not to soak fresh blood...

    My Love Of Swords

    Uhm... I have loved swords since my late teens I would say. Didn't know much about them until I was 18. That's when I had my first, it was great, I loved playing with it. I guess this is when my fasination began. After the first encounter with a sword, I felt I needed more...

    I have been collecting all types

    for years, the one in this photo is from Spain and is meant to convey the Robin Hood story... It has exquisite craftsmanship, it's not fully sharpened but I own some katana blades that are fully sharpened. I plan on purchase a short and long sword plus and Arabian. 😊

    Finally Started Collecting

    Whoo-hoo! I Mean... Grrr!

    I love swords, especially Japanese ones. I use to own Katanas and Tantos. Even though, I'm not a violent person in nature (I'm a lover, not a fighter!), I just like the warrior feel of having them. It was an accident... or coincidence, that I came across the love of Japanese...

    Blade Dancing

    I spin, the swords in my hands tracing a figure eight. I am showing off to myself, forgetting the rules, ignoring stance as I dance, truly dance with the blades. I feel the foam, creating a weight of its own in my hand, and I can sense the minutes trickling by until I have to...

    I know people think it's weird, but I'm a big fan of swords (and melee weapons in genereal). I find the schiavona particularly aesthetically pleasing, but I like pata better. In the event I ever decided to learn to use a weapon, I'd prefer something more obscure; maybe bagh nakh...

    It's not JUST the swords that I love. It's wondering what life was like in those times. Weather you are thinking about the Knights of the Round Table, and their valor, or perhaps the pirates and their freedom. Hell even in our images of the future; light sabers? I admire axes as...

    I Have A Love For Swords.

    I've never cared much about guns nor have I cared about axes, knives, and other forms of weaponry. But for me the sword is more than a weapon; I'm not sure how to explain what it is to me exactly because it is indeed a weapon, but it is also one of the only objects in this world...

    Becoming a master swordsman is something I hope to achieve in my life span. It's something I have to work hard for. Something that many people I know, simply do not understand. The sword is comfort to me. A sword in my hand is natural where something as simple as a credit card...
