Ninjas beware. We've got your number  
We may have just been given a katana as a present. (O_o)

Photobucket Pictures, Images and Photos

We're going to check tomorrow. But if so...I don't even know what to say. (o_O)

The katana is really nice. Obviously a display piece, but it has a folded blade, shark-skin handle with cord grip, wooden scabbard, etc. The stand is cheap plastic. Naoyuki-kun told us that traditionally they're made of deer antlers, but a traditional stand is around $6,000 nowadays.

Make a stand yourself when you're state side, i know its not gonna be the same but it could work well for desplay purposes.

Also are there customs rules about that sort of thing?

Also DAMN, I WANT! That is awsome

That's a... pretty impressive gift.

Also expect to be attacked by ninja.
