I held a fencing sword once. Those things are awkward to hold and use.

I've held my friend's fake Katana and short sword, but I haven't gotten a hold on anything genuine. I would love to one day, though.

I have a scholar's sword/gentleman's sword/cane sword.(However you call it) and it's pretty awesome. Snake cane with a button to light up the eyes and when you remove the cane part, it turns into a very sharp (tested out my whole room) sword. Dangerous, but it might be handy one day (Against zombies ,of course)

Most of my "katana" are shinken. The closest I have to a real sword originating from East Asia is a polished Damascus Type 94 shin gunto.

Most western swords I have are a Cold Steel reproduction of the 1796 saber and swept hilt rapier also from Cold Steel. The authentic swords I have are a German Empire cavalry saber with lion's head pommel, wire grip, enclosed hilt, etched oak pattern running along the blade, and Solingen maker's mark. The other I own is from the American Civil War, more of a commemorative victory saber I was told, that depicts the Confederate and Union flags crossed and on the reverse an eagle with olive branch encircled by stars, maker's mark being Emerson & Silver.

I use a bokken and shinai for Aikiken (the sword element of Aikido).
I held an Iaito once at a seminar, but I've never trained with one.

I've held swords before at my dojo and at home. I have my own functional carbon steel katana, an aluminum iaito, and a number of bokken in different ryu styles which i got at a Japanese import martial art store.

Katana seem very awkward and heavy at first but if you train with any regularity you get used to the weight and balance. Never held a non Japanese sword though I would I got the chance.

I have two real katana. Both are hand made using traditional methods. I need to clean, polish and oil them regularly and display them with the edge facing upward. if the edge faces downward for too long, the oil will pool at the edge and ruin the blade. My other swords are for decoration and don't need any real maintenance.

Two katanas, a broadsword, two machetes, and various knives.....kitchen knives.

These two are my favorites, but the one on the left is special. Part of my soul possesses it.....well, I love it so... <3 & NOBODY is allowed to touch it.
