I was lucky enough to spend some time at the ROM in Toronto recently, and thought I'd share a few of the photos I took of their arms and armor collection. My apologies for the quality of the photos; my photographic skills are lacking under optimal circumstances, and shooting through smudged glass under low light in a crowded room is wholly beyond my abilities.
Enjoy!

Not to detract from C.L.'s photos (They're better then most that I managed, the lighting there isn't very good.) but here's some pics a couple of acquaintances and I took while there.

Awesome pictures, thanks for sharing! Happy
I especially like those viking swords. And the quality of the photos is also very good, I think you did a great job.

Hmmm... Do you know what period those katana were from? I was not aware of bo-hi being prevalent.

Judging by their looks, the Viking and knight swords were perhaps archaeological finds.
