Gallery Exhibition: Sword Culture

Japanese arms and armor of the highest grade.


There was a time in Japanese history when a samurai was inseparable from the sword he wielded.

While that period may have passed, the craftsmanship and attention to detail swordsmiths bring to every katana blade has not waned in the slightest.

At this Frederick Harris Gallery exhibition, get an up-close-and-personal look at some of the most finely crafted implements of war produced by contemporary artisans.

For a deeper look into the world of Japanese arms and armor, former British Museum curator Paul Martin visits the Club for a TAC Talk on December 9.
