Yes. Many times. I have also been in two duels, though both were to " first blood" by mutual agreement.

I held a samurai sword in Japan at a museum. Was one of the exhibits. Another time I held a katana in a store that the owner let me see. He said I looked like a natural. I laughed and he said that I looked too natural holding it so I handed it back. Didn't need any strange rumors starting lol

I'm a personal collector of many fine blades. I was in fencing for 8 years and learned/competed in foil, epee, and saber and I still have those "blades". I also own a 14c hand and a half (bastard) sword. I have an assortment of different weapons of sias, nunchucks, tonfas, throwing stars, kamas, dirks, knives, hook spear, and a mace. I've owned a few ninja swords and katanas years back but they were the cheapo plastic handled kind... I have seen some very impressive replicas that were even woven with real ray skin and had hoped one day to buy one. Once at a flea market of all places, there was a guy selling off an authentic Japanese sword with the sword makers mark ingraved into the blade but I couldn't talk him down another $200 where I could have afforded it. Still, one of the saddest sights I ever saw was a black and white photo taken at the end of WWII. The Americans had collected all of the Japanese officer's swords into a huge pile, like 5 feet tall and about 12-15 feet long, and were tossing them into a furnace to be melted down... ;( If only I had a time machine...

Holy crap I love daggers...I've never seen one in my life though, besides video games and TV. That's my next goal to get, a beautiful dagger.
