the pointy end goes into the other man

“In a fight almost anything goes. It almost reaches the point where you stop to apologize if a chance blow lands above the belt.”

A sword meant for Lieutenant Wong. Somewhat scuffed but super sharp. Not sure about Nagamitsu having been a prison warden, but he certainly knew his way to keen steel, even whilst never expecting it to arm a dissolute Chinaman.

People who feel that their arms are mere tools, eschew the best of them for fear of squandering their value through use. But what we do with our arms enters into their history. All you have to do to be worthy of the best weapon is slay monsters or win prizes.
