    It's All About Keeping Your Edge . . .

    From the first time I watched Highlander both the movies and the television series to watching the Three Musketeers - I've been a undercover sword fanatic. There's somethig noble and humble yet dangerous and outright barbaric about swords. I think duels are a great and fair way...

    Road To Mastery

    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...

    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...

    I absolutely love my sword it is the most

    beautiful thing in the world. i remember the sound it made when i unsheathed it like music to my ears. but the downside was that the sheath was only built for the waist so i modified it on my back. best part is sharping it for i bought it dull and began to sharpen it. i l don't...

    (Picture) so while i was at my friends house,

    i found this titanium bar outside and decided to keep it. Ive been making it into a sword over the past week and i think its turning out nicely. The blade is fairly sharp and it feels comfortable. Since it is titanium, it is very light but packs some durability. All thats left...

    My youth group went on a mission trip recently.

    All the boys had bought knives except for two; one boy got a weapon kinda like a knife, but it was curved out as though it was designed for slitting throats. My other friend bought a George Washington and a ninja sword. He said a went home swinging it screaming "For Narnia...

    I've always loved swords

    and as a kid I used to take kendo classes. And to this day I still love them, collecting new ones when I can and teaching my nieces and nephews a bit of Kendo as well.

    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 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. 😊

    I Am a Warrior

    I've always had a fascination with swords, although I've never owned a real one.  Well, I do have a ninja sword, but it's not real, it was a well-made version of one for costume only.  It's heavy and solid and will work just fine should I need to bust somebody up with...

    Rapiers, small swords,

    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...
