Show your swords!!!

Here are a few of mine

The Japanese Swords were given to me by my daughter and frankly I wouldn't include them except they are from her. The quality isn't very good, but her heart was in the right place.

The European Practical Rapier is a Cas-Hanwei and my favorite by far. I wear it to Renaissance Faires and similar gatherings. The balance is excellent. While I have no formal fencing training I could envision sparring with this.

The small sword is a Russian Kindjal (sp?) made by Windlass. A gift from my wife. It normally hangs near the entrance to the front door and could in a pinch serve to parry borders :9:

Here are a couple of Nihonto wakizashi and tanto . The Katana is one I made some time ago . I sold it recently. The Wakizashi and Tanto I restored them after purchasing them from another member. The wakizashi is from the 1500's and the tanto around 1700's and was a wedding gift ( goshugi) to samurai warriors wife. The Katana is sanmai . Can't hardly wait until I can get back to work..........
