Apologies if this is all over the place. I will try to keep simple.
Does anyone here know of a way for my friends 95 year old father to return a samurai sword given to him by a Japanese soldier during WWII?
My friend’s father (we will call him Jay) was a Chinese America soldier in Japan after the war ended. During the Japanese surrender, I guess families weren’t allowed to have weapons of any kind. So this Japanese soldier gave his families samurai sword to Jay for safe keeping. Well this past week Jay contracted the virus that shall not be named and isn’t doing super well. He was hoping there was a website or process in which he could get this sword back to its family. It is a very specific sword with markings, characters and patterns.
Edit 1: My friend is super excited and thankful for all the helpful information and well wishes shared here. I will update this post Tuesday with photos of the sword, as well as photos my friend’s father took in Japan during WWII. Thank you again! S... keep reading on reddit ➡

Welcome to Samurai Day!
Though Samurai Jeans produces excellent denim jackets, flannels, loopwheeled t-shirts, and many other clothing and non-clothing items, the scope of this installment of Samurai Day is limited to their jeans. In addition, I’m focusing on cuts and models that have been offered over the past 3-5 years. (I’m purposely omitting the 20th anniversary releases because there was a lot of it, and they’re picked over and essentially no longer available. If you’re interested in that, see Samurai’s 2018 catalogs.) You’ll also note that I describe some items in great detail and others in little detail. That’s most likely because I know little about the latter. Also, I’m a Samurai fan, but not an expert in the brand. If anything I’ve stated below is inaccurate or you’d like to me add something, please don’t hesitate to message me.
Samurai Jeans was founded in 1997 in Nishinomiya, Japan by Toru Nogami. He began his brand near the height of... keep reading on reddit ➡
I've found an anime or well I think it's only a manga/comic at the moment, they commissioned FatJon to produce the soundtracks, but I dont think I'm the biggest fan of the story... Haven't read enough to say for sure though... but yeah, if anyone knows of others, let me know 🙏😌
A post over at /r/HistoryPorn has gathered quite some attention, as it should, because it shows none other than Edward, the Duke of Windsor, dressed up in the armour of a Japanese samurai! How crazy!
But there's one small problem, that's not Eddy at all.
As far as I can tell, the source of this picture comes from the most trustworthy of places, a random user on Wikipedia, who uploaded this picture on the 16th of October in the year of our lord 2014 with the following caption: > Edward, Prince of Wales in traditional Japanese clothes in 1922. He dressed up as a Samurai warrior during his visit to the Simazu clan in Kagoshima, Japan in 1922
Their own source for this is the French National Library, which is where we start to run into a bit of an issue, namely the fact tha... keep reading on reddit ➡
So can we get more Knight based armor instead of the rusty samurai gear we keep getting lol.
Edit: by the way for those who are saying Iron lords weren’t knights and I only want D1 stuff to come back. How about you educate yourselves?
Lore: Radegast smiled. "We will gather those you trust. We will not wait for this"—he gestured around him— "to force our hand. We will ride against those that would use the Light against our own. Humanity must have protectors. Like the knights of old."
“Like the Knights of old.”
Lore: Saladin Forge grinned inside his helmet. The enormous wyrm towered above them, bleeding wounds covering its gleaming scales as it reared up for another breath. The massive axe in his hands was dented, scarred, and melted at the tip. But it still held an edge. "We are knights, Lady Efrideet. Do you not want to be a dragon slayer?"
I really love the devs, I do, but can we stop with this? We’ve been begging for historical armor for the vikings, hell, not even historical, just real armor. For the samurai we just want some steel. And personally I had enough of the insanely edgy fantasy skull helmets for the knights.

Hey friends... Since I got into raw denim a few years ago there have been two brands that appealed to me above all others : Momotaro and Samurai. I lucked out in finding a pair of 18oz GTB that made me fall in love with heavy denim, but I could never find a pair of Samurais that I wanted or in my size.
Fast forward to a few weeks ago when I learned about the Levi's vs Japanese jeans thing and also saw the Book of Five Rings re-releases. I was already fed up with my cheap jeans being boring or baggy, so decided to make the jump in spite of not being flush with cash right now.
I figure this is the last chance I have to get a 'classic' pair of Samurai Jeans. So initially I wanted to get the Green ones, but of course they are sold out in anything I can wear. But Denimio still had some of the Red ones.
I got a pair in tag size 31 because I'm tired of baggy jeans and wrinkles in my waistband. My Momotaros have this problem even though I love them.
Anyway, here's some pictures my wife too... keep reading on reddit ➡
