Some of the War lords..! They didn't always pick the most skilled warriors .!

The practice of all forms of sword-play were banned except to the elitists so they could never be sure of the best skill levels..! Many times ,their chosen warriors were defeated because of these hidden practitioners., !

With the social graces also came the privilege of publicly displaying the Daisha.!

Wow that is wild but much respect for training even with that against you. I hope you will be able to over come it and be right back to where you were before. You didn't lose those Digits from training did you ?!?! Lol just kidding.

This is a Tachi made by Marto of Toledo Spain. The same sword was used in the premier episode of Highlander in the episode called "The Gathering" by Connor Macloud during a fight. The Tachi was the first blade design of the Japanese and the later straighter blade that was produced is the Katana.
