Samurai Weapons is a website dedicated to the subject of Samurai and everything related to Samurai. Samurai were elite warriors of feudal Japan. They are known for their exceptional ways of sword-wielding and martial arts as well as for their code of honour and loyalty to their master (Bushido) that they followed to the letter and put in front and ahead of anything else in their lives.
Samurai as military men were known in Japan's history starting from the 7th century when they first used for putting down rebellions in distant provinces. And by the 12th century they formed clans and rose to such a power that they turned Japan into a samurai-dominated government, the Shogunate, with the Shogun at the top of the ruling hierarchy. The Samurai rule went in decline in the late 19th century during the Meiji Restoration

The Samurai Weapons website is organised in categories and sub-categories for easier navigation and each section will show appropriate items currently listed on eBay. You can see a short outline of categories below and you can see also some current listings for products available on the Samurai Weapons website at the bottom of the page (scroll down).
Samurai Weapons and Samurai Armor are sections dedicated to the arms that Samurai used for slicing and dicing their enemies in their every day life and armours that they used to protect themselves from being sliced and diced. That would include different kinds of samurai swords (Katana, Wakizashi, etc.), some polearms (Naginata and Yari), and elements of Samurai armour. Some of the items in these sections would be authentic items that real Samurai used, but in the most cases, and especially for arms, expect to see some sort of a reproduction produced in the present days. It doesn't make them less valuable unless you an antique collector, but only more affordable.
Samurai Art, Samurai Books, Samurai Movies, and Samurai Video Games sections will have all corresponding articles of media related to the same subject of Samurai. The range of items presented in these sections is really huge and varies from classic movies and books, such as "Seven Samurai" by Akira Kurosawa or "The Book of Five Rings" by Miyamoto Musashi, to more contemporary anime cartoons and video games, such as Afro Samurai or Samurai Shodown.
