    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...

    Swords And More

    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...

    A Little Wierd

    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...

    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 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...

    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...

    The Katana

    I love the style of this blade. Quick and agile. An instrument of death embodied with the will of it's wielder. With it you have the power to destroy and the power to protect. I sometimes pretend that I'm training in solitude on a grassy plain completely separated from the rest...

    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 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 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...

    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...
