The shop representative, Mr. Shono, whom I had the pleasure to meet and speak with, confirms this idea. He spoke about how his passion for katana began in early childhood, and how he continued to love swords by allowing the child inside to stick around as he grew up. “The katana are living beings,” he says, “and they are calling to each other. It is rare to encounter weapons with the same family crest―and in just one month, I managed to collect five of them. It was sheer luck”.
His true devotion shows when he takes a katana in his hands, explaining how to fully enjoy its beauty. It didn’t take me long to understand―I was handed the sword and the moment I looked at the perfect surface of the edge reflecting the light, my heart had gone calm and all my thoughts melted away. It was a sensation similar to the goose bumps one gets when listening to a beautiful piece of music or looking at fine works of art.(Excerpt from the article)
