5 Premier Swords For Modern Enthusiasts

Firearms are for warriors, swords are for real warriors. I use to differentiate a warrior and a real warrior. To me, a warrior is the one who uses the advantage of a modernized weapon, but a real warrior is the one who always prefer a weapon that is exclusively made for war. Firearms are a new thing, while a significant part of the history is dominated by swords. Hence, for me swords are the real weapons for warriors.

There is a reason why many enthusiasts still prefer swords over other weapons. Yes, these bladed weapons are no more useful in wars. But, I don’t think war has remained an option. In the modern days, dialogue is considered a solution to the political conflicts around the world. Therefore, both swords and firearms are just some things placed in your collection, and nothing more. But, if you have swords in your arsenal, you are considered a real enthusiast. I mean, this expresses your love for the weapons and your respect for the real ancient warriors.


Since we have stepped into a modern world, we have a modern approach to everything. For instance, we now want to have modern swords apart from just traditional swords. What are these modern swords though? Well, these are different from traditional ones and are made for just decoration purpose, not for fighting. But, it does not mean that they are fake swords made of foam and wood. You can have both wooden and foam swords, and real steel-made swords.

If you are an enthusiast looking for some modern swords, let me introduce some modernized swords that will blow your mind. Since you are curious to get them in your collection, here are the five premier swords for you:

Sword cane is something that really fulfills the definition of advancement and modernization. I believe that modernism means smarter approach to things. For instance, we use the internet to apply for a degree online which is faster and cheaper method.

A sword cane is a decoration piece in your living room, a cane for walking and a blade for defending against the attackers. This is why modern enthusiasts prefer such things.
