OK this is looking like a must-see for anyone who thinks a sword is more exciting than a tank. Reclaiming the Blade is a new film due for release that explores both European and Asian historic swordplay and offers an in-depth look at the fascinating world of stage combat on the silver screen. It looks like it covers the history of the sword with a particular emphasis on renaissance martial arts with contributions from a variety of Hollywood names and more importantly, sword experts. And if you sign up for the newsletter (here) looks like you get the chance to win a sword of your own.

Although not if I get to it first.
