i'd go for it. i know i will be when i get my own place, it'll probably wind up looking like the dojo in the matrix where neo and morpheous fight. . . i can't wait!

butterfly: i've had the exact same experience when i unsheaved a wazakashi wallhanger in a shop, i could barely get it out because i was pulling on the tsuba at the wrong angle lol, probably knackered the inside of the saya the feeling of power is crazy, just the knoledge theat you could rip pretty much everyone in the room apart with it in a few short seconds.

Taison: i've been after one of those chinese shirts. is there any special name for them? i also want to get a kimono/cotton hakami as they look so comfortable.

Funny, the only time I held a 'real' sword it simply 'felt' perfect. Although, the guy who insisted that I hold it instantly regretted it, saying that all of a sudden he felt 'weirdly nervous...sick in the gut'. (Maybe we should start a thread on 'sword stories' somewhere.)

As for 'Asian' things in my home, considering most of what I own was manufactured in Asia, I'm considering purchasing something that is becomeing really rare: an item stamped 'Made in the USA'.

Great idea!

I got the Swedish, Thai, Spanish and the Chinese flag in my wardrobe[Props from a play about 5 years ago]. Maybe I should go get myself the Japanese, Italian, Singaporean, and the US ones. Soon, people are gonna come knocking on my door asking for a "Visa" for sure. Man that's gonna be hilarious.

I have a display set of shirsaya swords (katana, wakizashi, tanto) on the top shelf of my "bookcase" in my room. It was a gift from my instructor's instructor.

I have a little red acrylic cast dragon that was given to me by my fiance sitting on my desk. About 4 inches tall, it is a dragon sitting clutching a ball.

That's about it...although I do have a lot of stuff still in boxes.

Do you have them in the right order? Most of the sword sets I've seen are not.

I have a tai-chi sword hanging above my certificates.
