They come in different shape sizes weights and gaudiness. They are connected to any countries history and look sweeet.

What are your favourite swords, do you own any, do you know how to use one?

Or just a general discusssion of swords and sword related topics

My friend was teaching me a lot of Kenjutsu. I know how to hold a katana and somewhat how to use it with technique.

We usually practiced with boken. Which is a wooden katana. Or we used shinai, which is a bamboo sword. Both the boken and the shinai hurt like hell.

I was just in China, and there were so many cool swords for cheap...if I had had a bigger suitcase I would have picked on up...

I should have at least gotten a dagger, though. :(

my favorite swords would be either the hand and a half sword like this.

My family has always been partial to Claymore's, axes and hammers. Violence was a family trademark :D

I love rapiers. They're always what first comes to mind when I think of swords.
I own Arwen's sword, Haldafang, and I swing it around at people to make them afraid of me.

I wonder if that blade drew blood before you resheaved it?

acliff

I've cut myself on it once, I underestimated how sharp it can get.
I have no idea about its history, or whether anyone was actually killed/attacked with it, it was most likely used to chop up food and wood.

However, its interesting to think it may have been used in combat...

Siths are the coolest people in Star Wars, the Jedis are boring:icon_popc

I concur. Although Yoda is pretty damn awesome, he's not enough to make up for the rest.

I personally am a sucker for the scottish jedi (Obi wann), never piss them off. Brad do yo know why the falcata and macharia did not stay around long enough for plate mail while the falchion did?

yodas cool but Darth Maul was my favourite,the double red lightsaber and the billowy black robes were kind of cool, far better than the brown Jedi ones.

But the purple light saber was great, and mace could of and would have killed the sith if it wasnt for the whinney skywalker cretin

I actually have two swords. One fantasy inspired one, and one Viking sword. Paid a lot for them, espacially the Viking sword. They just stand in a corner now, never really know why I bought them

yes Hazzle I am a fan of the female gender.

I think I found the best medieval long sword in the world at the moment....here (http://www.albion-swords.com/Discerner/Discerner.html)
