    Great article. Thanks for sharing.

    I think I saw an open Mudmaster picture there (page 2, 4th picture in webview).

    "Casio has been inspired by tanks when developing the look of its Mudmaster collection..." LOL I can definitely believe THAT!!! One look at the watch on your wrist and it is easy to understand.

    I'd love to visit that Katana store!! $30-50K for one, though??!!! WOW!!!!

    Thanks for posting the link, Gary.

    Have a look at the design sketch where the Mudmaster is codenamed "Groundmaster".

    Check out Gunto swords, which are mostly WW2 trophy bring homes.
    They are mostly nothing like traditional Katanas, certainly not in quality. Although some were re-bladed with family blades which are more rare and valuable.
    The Guntos were mass produced to be used as mainly symbols of rank .
    Interestingly the Japanese declared all Guntos as "not swords" and it is illegal in Japan to own or sell them.
    I have two Imperial Japanese Army NCO "kyu-gunto"/western styled examples that I paid way less than $150. each for.
    They are WW2 victory trophies and the sakuras are intact .
