Demystifying the Giant Norimitsu Odachi

Admittedly, the reason why my friends are into swordsmanship is because of the sword itself. They just want to handle swords, that's all. They don't care about winning competitions or fights; for them, the swords in their hand brings an inexplicable pleasure. There is a sort of romance surrounding these weapons that others don't have. Most, that is. I say this because I've heard that polearms also have their place in other cultures and that the dagger has become symbolic in modern militaries.
