The samurai culture is remarkable. The customs of these males in dark robes might appear discourteous to common European of American people, however, their take on acts and attitude to the relationship, obligation and honour are mind-blowing. We, Americans and Europeans, definitely lack some virtues that every samurai had.
A samurai sword is even more compared to a weapon for him. A sword is what makes him a samurai. Also people not curious about samurai society admire their swords that are true pieces of art (of course, I am discussing authentic blades). Also today, genuine swords are made as they were made centuries earlier. Yes, you may buy some blades online, and sellers will vouch those are genuine samurai Katana sale weapons; nonetheless, you will end up acquiring scrap. Nowadays, few Japanese sword masters are left.
