cold weapons, cold steel knives
Warrior is an ancient profession to fight in combat or warfare, which appears in many of different cultures. In cold weapon era, Warriors played important role in the course of history. The legends of warriors and heroes keep telling the stories of bravery, vigor, courage, or aggressiveness. Today, the legend is continuing in the modern creations, films, vedio games and tattoos.
In medieval times, a knight was a man of noble birth, who served his king or lord in battle. In premodern Japan, warrior represents special social class, i.e., Japanese Warriors, or samurai (or bushi). The Samurai was respected for his duty to his master, and loyalty unto death.
