For those of you who are collectors, the beauty of a Japanese sword is something that cannot be denied. For those who are fans of swordsmanship, the skillful use of Samurai swords is something that can entertain you for hours. These different types of beauty are determined not only by the eye of the beholder, but the interest of the owner of the Japanese sword. These weapons can slice a piece of paper with the softest of blows. The trick is that it's not all in the power of the use of the sword, but in the grace and technique of handling a dangerous sword.

Mastering the use of Samurai swords is something that even those who are skilled with a saber desire and sometimes never obtain. The length and sharpness of these blades require expert hand-eye coordination skill. In competition, the goal is not to injure your opponent, but to demonstrate your ability to control the Japanese sword.

The beauty of an expert with a sword is something nobody can deny. The truth is that Japanese swords are as much of a work of art as they are weapons. They are beautifully cut and in many cases the handles feature intricate carving skills by the designer. This makes these swords centerpieces of many art displays of individual homes. The swords are hung on the wall and can become a centerpiece for discussion in a dining room or a display case in a den.

The craftsmanship and the use of these swords are just two of the things that are noticed when they are displayed. The true hidden mystery of these swords can be the story behind themselves. The owner may have traveled across the world to find the sword that he wished to display. It may have been a sword that him or a family member used in a competition. It might also have historical significance. This is why sword collectors around the world seek swords such as a Samurai sword to display in their homes as part of their art collections.
