Real Sword


12 1/4″ W x 43″ H Japanese Scroll
by Master Japanese Calligrapher Eri Takase


Real Sword in Japanese is 真剣 which is read shinken

The Japanese word shinken means Real Sword and is composed of the kanji (read shin) meaning “True” and (read ken) meaning “Sword”. shinken is commonly used in Japanese to mean “serious” or “earnest” alluding to the idea that one is using a “real sword” rather than a practice or unsharpened weapon.
