This, my friends, is a Hattori Hanzo sword. From the movie Kill Bill (Volumes 1 & 2). You can blame Casey, he found it. It's all his fault. That's okay, though, because the same site (www.kingofswords.com) also has a replica of Gimbley's ax from Lord of the Rings and he wants that... My advice: learn nunchaku first, then move on to the ax, babe.
