Japanese Swords

Japanese Swords are many things: functional objects of martial tradition, the very soul of the Samurai, and artistic creations of unparalleled beauty.  More so, the Sword, the Jewel, and the Mirror are divine objects of the Shinto religion, and Japanese swords a millennium old or more are enshrined as deities, and regarded by the Japanese government as cultural assets of extreme importance and National treasures. Clearly, the sword of st1:country-region w:st="on">Japan has a weight that few Westerners can appreciate. Beyond this level of importance, the intricacies of design and forging development over the centuries have created an object of true artistic importance, and even those foreign to its function will often marvel at a swords blatant beauty. The Japanese regard the art of the sword as highly as calligraphy, deserving of a place among the highest forms of art. This beauty, as well as the effectiveness of Japanese swords, are a result of the sophisticated methods of manufacture, and the specialized and painstaking way they are polished. Centuries of development of the Japanese sword, both culturally and functionally, have yielded an object that is equally deadly, Holy, and beautiful.o:p>
