Samurai Swords

I went to a maritime museum this past weekend, and saw a display of Katana Blades. This little spiel said that those on display were from surrendering soldiers that were captured by the U.S.S Missouri (could be wrong about the ship's name).

Anyways, it continues on by saying that so many Samurai swords were collected from the end of WWII that, there could be more swords in America than in Japan. Weird.
