Cool Re: San Francisco Token Kai 2010

Yeah, The City, known to outsiders as San Francisco, holds a wonderful sword show in Burlingame. The lectures feature some knowledgeable folks and the opportunity to closely look at antique blades is a great experience. Those attending will get a chance to see things they've only read about. For example, one year I saw a full saddle with stirrups on display from the 16th century.

I have friends who call it "Cali" and "Frisco" too, but they're all carpetbaggers and just don't know any better. Poor devils, they all seem to hail from New York and New Jersey.
