So There Was a Real Hattori Hanzo

0 comments suggest edit

Hattori Hanzo A while ago I wrote about Seppuku, Katanas, and Samurai and made a joking reference to Hattori Hanzo.

In my comments someone named Lazken notes that a Hattori Hanzo did exist, but he did not make swords. You can read about Hanzo in the samurai archives.

Lazken goes on to say that we watch too many Kill Bill movies. Umm… dude… there’s only two of them. ;)

    yes . as a matter of fact, there was once a brave leader who lead over a hundred strong ninjas under Tokugawa Shogunate. This name not only existed in a video game or Kill Bill Movie but also in Japanese History.
