Anime Swords - Ninjas, Samurais, and Evil Blades
Swords are Awesome.
Anime swords are one of the largest collectables for anime in the world. Most animes consist of some kind of hero with a sword that looks awesome. They are normally skilled at using them and they play a critical role in both knowing the character and progressing the story line. Some swords are holy and must be captured before evil while others used them to commit evil and must now rectify what they have done in the past - like in Rurioni Kenshen. Swords can even help viewers know the characters, for example the large two handed sword used by Cloud with the wraps around it. When you see that sword you know its Cloud, no one else has that sword (get it). Well many of these swords are made in real life for collectors. While still made of steel and can be used as a sword many can not withstand normal use as a weapon and should only be used for collection purposes. Anyway here are some of the anime swords that are available:
Cloud and His Sword
This is the best replica Kenshen sword in the world. It is fully functional as a Sakabato (reversed blade katana)and one of the most famous swords to ever exist.
This is a special replica of Kenshins sword that while still steel will not be able to engage in combat as it is dull and will most likely break. This is the eye candy version.
This unique sword is Hitroshima Kenshins trademark. The sword is fictional as it never actually existed in samurai times. The sword has a reverse blade so normal attacks don't cut and kill. Once he slayed thousands of people being called Batosai the manslayer, now he uses his sword for peace to only protect from wrong and evil. It is said to be the only metal sword that using his fighting style will keep opposition alive. This is one of the most famous swords in existence and should be in any anime themed sword collection.
This is Links blade. While being a videogame character many people in the anime world love him as well. This star of Zelda is also a very popular piece. This sword is made of steel but is unsharpened. Videogame lovers would prefer this sword to most others. Even if you never played or liked the Zelda games I have to say the sword is awesome nonetheless.
Naruto Sasuke Sword
Sasuke from the hit show Naruto sword is a simple strait grass cutter type sword. When thinking about Naruto most people think ninja throwing shuriken and kunai. That's why Sasuke from leaf village is here to save the day with his sword. Feel like Sasuke and nail any cosplay with this sharped steel grass cutter!
This sword is really cool, weights about 6 lbs this sword opens to 4 blades just like in the show.
A very light sword that is a symbol of the love of Bleach.
Bleach is also a popular anime. Thoughtout this show there are tons of different people with different kinds of swords. Some with 4 blades, some with special hilts, and some that don't even look like swords (like Renji Abarai's). Again any fan would love these swords. If one Christmas morning I work up to find a sword from Bleach or any of the others here I would be overjoyed. True fans would love these swords.
The Last Slice
The person who swipes his/her sword last is always the winner. Regardless of which sword chosen all are a collectors dream. Long swords, short swords, or swords with multiple blades. All are worthy of you if you give them a chance. From wooden to full carbon sharped steel these blades will not only be a protection tool and a display item, but truly be a friend in your heart. So choose, the deadly Zanpakuto or maybe the more forgiving but still awesome reverse blade Sakabato welded by the greatest swordsman to live Batosai the manslayer.
