The autumn leaves are falling like rain. Although my neighbors are all barbarians and you, you are a thousand miles away, there are always two cups at my table.

T’ang Dynasty poem

Ten thousand flowers in spring, the moon in autumn, a cool breeze in summer, snow in winter. If your mind isn't clouded by unnecessary things, this is the best season of your life.

Japanese and Chinese Swords


A friend sent me this link to a sword manufacturer in China. There are plenty of pictures of some very nice looking swords in a variety of styles, both Japanese and Chinese.

That looks like a great forge. I especially liked their jian collection. They had some really interesting ones in there.

Thanks for the link!
