No samurai's sword is worth less than $100,000K.

Try again. Katana, Japanese style, ken; there's many correct ways to say it.

Must not have been that big of a sword.

Have to agree here.  With a store name of "Oriental Décor" located at "Lynnhaven Crossing Shopping Center," the sword is definitely not an authentic hand-made katana, but a mass produced knockoff.

He did not look exactly like I expected, because I clicked on the link to the ugly-ass baby monkey by mistake.  Severe cognitive dissonance for a second or two.

Well if you try something like that you better not go off half-cocked.

"He really didn't mean to steal it from my store," John says. "I can tell from their eyes or their face. I think everyone makes mistakes."

Wha?   I need this statement explained to me.

The thief intended to steal a Hattori Honzo sword from another store, but accidentally wandered into Oriental Décor and settled for a knock-off.

That was my first thought. 300 bucks doesn't get you a samurai sword. Though I thought a generic sword from the Edo period was worth about 10k, not 100.

Now if the sword belonged to Miyamoto Musashi, I could see it going for $1,000,000 easy.

Even if it is handmade, there hasn't been a samurai for nigh on 150 years.

I live around here. That store sold junk. Hence the "Store Closing" sign seen in the window on the video.

In straight cash.

The problem is that a samurai's sword requires a license and can't leave Japan.

Just so we're clear on this statement, no samurai's sword is worth less than 100 million dollars.

Unless there is blood sprouting from where his dick used to be before he shoved a sword down his pants, he looks NOTHING like I'd expect, subby...

He really needed that sword! Someone stole his shiat on WoW, and it was time to reap some bloody vengance

A sword requires a license to own one, or a license to exist? Like you can have a sword to hang in your apartment if you get licenensed to own one like having a gun in New York city, or like the sword needs to have a license taped to it (or whatever) to prove it's an authentic Japanese sword, and not some Chinese import, and if it doesn't have a license proving it's real, it gets destroyed?

And by not leaving Japan, do you mean a historical sword, or even a modern day sword you get a master smith to make for you? I am pretty sure people have old Japanese swords, do they have to smuggle them out?

but you do have a very good point subby.

After reading th headline I tried to imagine the thief.  I had it narrowed down to two people.  The thief turned out to be one, the store owner was the other.

What immediately came to mind:

/dude be crazy.

"The store's owner, John, who did not want to show his face or give his last name, says he was upset when he first saw the video, but says he forgave the thief."

But who can be seeing clearly in the clip of the man returning it...

What the fark is it with news sites that need like 100+ different javascript sites just to function. Fark that

Actually, I expected him to be gritting his teeth, sweating and moving very, very delicately.
 
2013-12-12 11:19:57 AM
I figured he might look like this:

alizeran: Did he hide it in his fedora?[img.fark.net image 500x375]


Trilby, not a fedora.

Although I do appreciate that calling any hat with a brim a 'fedora' is somewhat akin to calling any japanese-style breadknife a 'samurai sword.'

Why do all these know it all's...every time a samurai/katana article pops...
HAVE to start their bullshiat evaluation of what makes an authentic samurai sword/katana/wall hanger.
Bottom line...all 3 versions are nearly 3 feet of sharpened steel that will fark YOU UP.
That's all that needs be noted.
Calm down, professors...no one has sword fights these days so even a 30 dollar wall hanger will massacre someone who isn't expecting to get attacked by a sword at that given moment, because, really...how many of us are expecting that kind of shiat in our everyday, humdrum life???
I own both wall hangers and folded carbon steel swords, but don't find the need to balk about the fine points of them.
I just like the way they look and cut.
 
2013-12-12 12:30:54 PM
Can I get a witness? Or at least a picture of who we are talking about?

Japan treats it's 'legitimate' Samurai swords like France treats it's champagne.  Yes, "real" Samurai swords are HIGHLY prized in Japan, and the cheap knock-off's they sell in stores here are pretty much insults to the real deal.

The real swords are still hand-crafted, and still cost thousands if not tens of thousands to have made. (Depending on materials, process, etc.)  The cultural connection to Bushido in Japan is strong, and taken very seriously.

Gah! I hate those ever since I tried to use an "authentic samurai sword" to slay a Chiropteran demon and the stupid thing snapped like a twig. I had to fall back on my old standby of 2lbs of C4, boy was my landlord pissed.
