so the other day in a quiet local cafe, we happened to meet a man who deals in historic japanese artifacts. like real deal edo period katana and the like. he asked if we wanted to see one, i think i might have blurted out “FUCK YESS!!!”…

then he said i could hold the sword myself, more like touch the handle. he kept a death grip on it the whole time, understandable really, he must have sensed that i am actually a secret ninja…

look how intently he is watching for any deadly movement that i might make with my fingers. like dropping the sword on his foot. in this photo i am saying “eeeeEEhhwAAAAAAggUUUssshhhhhffffaaaAAAArrrk…”

fulla had all manner of genuine museum certification and paraphernalia to go along with it, and apparently this one was worth around 1,200,000 yenses (about NZ$20K these days). dang.
