Welcome to Blades of the Gods.  Real blades – crafted by knowledgeable, wise individuals – are personal, timeless, very sharp and first and foremost, hard to come by. For thousands of years the blade a man carried, made him who he was. The Highlanders and Murasaki would agree that a blade is not just a tool.
