    Hey.

    Maybe a strange question but... do you guys know what gifting a sword means in Japanese culture? Or in other cultures?

    Logic would imply it would signify loyalty or servitude (If friends) or peace (If enemies) but I'm not entirely sure and found nothing with google.

    I would think not so much loyalty or servitude so much as respect and honor.
