The Japanese swords are really something special, because they very artfully and with love were forged in part to detail. Each sword is a work of art starting with the Ninja, sword of the Samurai sword, until to the Katana, which is one of the 3 Imperial insignia. The two other trappings are the jewel and the mirror. All three insignia together point to the particular position.

Many of the swords that are offered on the market today manufactured faithfully and are thus also sharply ground. Medieval markets, visitors can be mostly witnesses show fights. Already millennia ago battles are shown there faithfully, appropriately prepared for weapons of the contemporary models are used.
