Japanese swords in fiction

Examine the thousand-year-old art and science behind the making of a Japanese warrior's signature weapon. Program not available for streaming. English archers had their longbows, Old West sheriffs had their six-guns, but Japan's samurai warriors had the most fearsome weapon of all: the razor-sharp, unsurpassed technology of the katana , or samurai sword. In this program, NOVA probes the centuries-old secrets that went into forging what many consider the perfect blade. Fifteen traditional Japanese craftsmen spent nearly six months creating the sword that NOVA follows through production, from smelting the ore to forging the steel to sharpening the blade to a keen edge capable of slicing through a row of warriors at one swoop.

Japanese swords and their rich individual histories have fascinated people for centuries. Swords were first used as weapons in the Tumulus Period 3rd century. Swords seen in the Asuka and Nara Periods were called chokuto, or straight sword, a name that reflects their use for thrusting rather than slashing. The evolution of what was to become the classic Japanese katana the world has come to know began in the Heian Period , which saw a surge in the demand for swords due to the many internal conflicts that took place during that period, the most famous of which is perhaps the clash between the Genji and Heike Clans known as the Genpei Kasen. Before this time, imported swords were valued over domestic blades for their quality.

Secrets of the Samurai Sword

The stories presented here are from by two books Legends and Stories Around the Japanese Sword and Legends and Stories Around the Japanese Sword 2, published in and respectively. In the end, the reader should have an idea about the high value that was placed on this proverbial legendary weapon over more than thousand years of Japanese history and even still today as an object of art.

The katana sword appears in many folk tales as well as legends. This piece of Japanese history not only appears in old folklore, it is also very popular in modern fiction as well as contemporary art pieces such as film and theater. The katana has reached far and wide in the world of fictional stories and can be used to tell tales of wisdom and bravery or evil and treachery. The sword can be seen not only as a tool for the hero but also a tool for the villain.

These were all recently posted here on the NMB by various members, but for those of you who missed them, or didn't notice them, I thought it would be good to post a list of links to valuable articles and info found on the net.

Transcript

Однако это было не. Несмотря на свой внушительный вид, дешифровальное чудовище отнюдь не было островом в океане. Хотя криптографы были убеждены, что система фильтров Сквозь строй предназначалась исключительно для защиты этого криптографического декодирующего шедевра, сотрудники лаборатории систем безопасности знали правду. Фильтры служили куда более высокой цели - защите главной базы данных АНБ. Чатрукьяну была известна история ее создания. Несмотря на все предпринятые в конце 1970-х годов усилия министерства обороны сохранить Интернет для себя, этот инструмент оказался настолько соблазнительным, что не мог не привлечь к себе внимания всего общества.

Наконец он нашел его и снова выстрелил. Пуля ударила в закрывающуюся дверь. Пустое пространство зала аэропорта открылось перед Беккером подобно бескрайней пустыне. Ноги несли его с такой быстротой, на какую, казалось ему, он не был способен. Когда он влетел во вращающуюся дверь, прозвучал еще один выстрел. Стеклянная панель обдала его дождем осколков.

Стратмор кивнул: - Как раз сейчас японские компании скачивают зашифрованную версию Цифровой крепости и пытаются ее взломать. С каждой минутой, уходящей на эти бесплодные попытки, ее цена растет. - Но это же абсурд, - не согласилась Сьюзан.  - Ни один из новых шифрованных файлов нельзя вскрыть без ТРАНСТЕКСТА. Вероятно, Цифровая крепость - это стандартный алгоритм для общего пользования, тем не менее эти компании не смогут его вскрыть. - Это блистательная рекламная операция, - сказал Стратмор.  - Только подумай - все виды пуленепробиваемого стекла непроницаемы для пуль, но если компания предлагает вам попробовать пробить ее стекло, все хотят это сделать.

 Сьюзан, это Дэвид. Я тебя разбудил. Она улыбнулась и поудобнее устроилась в постели. - Ты мне только что приснился.

 Прошу прощения. - Шекспир, - уточнил Хейл.  - Гамлет. - Самообразование за тюремной решеткой.
