    completely unrelated and nit-picky, but they'er called Katanas. :D

    I love oriental weapons. If i someday get the chance, I would love to one day own a functional katana *sigh...* In my dreams :(

    Well I like most types of swords but I voted for medieval and lotr.
    I'd probably put them in this order:
    1) medieval
    2) lotr (I like them but prefer functional swords)
    3) historical
    4) oriental
    5) fantasy - some of these can be nice but most tend to be too unrealistic

    I like the medieval swords. most of all, i prefer the Scottish Basket hilt and Scottish Claymore (That really big sword Mel Gibson used in braveheart). I basically prefer any celtic weapon, from the swords to the large double handed mauls.

    I love them all. Swords are so beautiful... whenever I visit a museum or a castle, I first check out what kind of weapons they have. The most important thing in a sword is, in my opinion, that it's sharp. So, everything really goes for me. I love swords (my friend has one, I only have a little dragon dagger. Maybe I should steal her sword...)

    I had to go with Oriental, specifically Japanesse....... I find no sword more elegant and simple than a katana.
