Blade of the Black Swordsman sounds like some sort of interracial adult movie, but it’s not. It’s actually a really cool black sword made out of foam. With it, you can best your enemies without drawing blood, and having to go to jail/the hospital.
I grew up watching all the old martial arts movies I could find on late night TV. I was always particularly enamored with the samurai and the katana sword. Perhaps the most famous movie with a Katana sword in it is Kill Bill.
Late last year I talked a bit about a pair of robotic arms that had a sword fight. It was pretty awesome to see them battle it out to the with swords. This time out we have a robot with a katana sword and this ‘bot is totally a Fruit Ninja.
Etsy shop Gothelf Bros Studios makes these wooden replicas of Link’s swords from The Legend of Zelda. There’s the Wooden Sword, the White Sword and the Magic Sword. Isn’t the Old Man kind of an ass for not giving the Magic Sword to Link right away?
One of my favorite characters on The Walking Dead is Michonne. I like her because she uses a sword to slice and dice zombies rather than a gun. If you are besieged with a bunch of slow zombies, I think a sharp Katana sword might be the best way to kill a hoard.

The Wheel of Time turns and ages come and go… The Wheel of Time is a series of 14 fantasy novels by Robert Jordan. If you have never read them, you are really missing out. After he died in 2007, Brandon Sanderson finished the last three books in the series.
Legend says that when this My Little Pony sword with cutie mark is pulled from the stone, they will have found their king…or Queen. The problem is that ponies only have hooves, so no one can remove the sword from the stone.
Diablo III fans will recognize this sword prop right away. It’s El’Druin – The Sword of Justice – and it was designed directly from the digital art files for the game. That means it looks like the one Tyrael uses to flay baddies in the game.
Your typical ninja is a person of stealth wearing all black and carrying swords that look more sinister than cute. I wonder if there was ever a group of ninja’s that liked to add a little color and flare to their dark costumes.
