Who doesn’t love a good sword? Whether it’s the weapons of the Samurai and Ninja, or Excalibur or that brute of a thing that William Wallace carried in Braveheart, these ancient tools of war are a part of our development as a species. Some are ornate, some are basic, some are well made and some […]
