Very nice here is a pic of my katana.

I love looking at the different tempering line it gives each katana it's own personality!

Each was a masterpiece with it's known master forger , quenching , and other techniques from folding to carbon levels in steel..!

My Japanese Ju-Jutsu instructor also teaches Judo, Kendo, Iaido, and Kyudo. Kendo looks cool as hell but I've had 3 shoulder surgeries and there is no way I could hold the wooden sword above my head without being in massive pain. I'm a Judo, Jap Ju-Jutsu, and Brazilian Jiu-jitsu guy. I do better with grappling. The concept of Iaido is cool though. You practice drawing your katana and cutting your enemy down and then wipe the blood from the blade and re sheath in one fluid motion so that no extra moves are done. There are thousands of draws they practice from different positions (ie. dealing with single vs multiple attackers from different angles)

You can be embarrassed? I'd've never guessed!
Keep on keeping on Dango. I only wish I could handle a sword. I do fine chopping brush with a machete, and sometimes I day dream that I'm a samurai while doing it.
