True

Japanese officers originally carried kyū-guntō ("old military sword" in Japanese), which resembled western cavalry sabers, until a nationalist movement demanded a more traditional katana shape. Most of the resulting katanas, called shin-guntō ("new military sword") were simply mass-produced pieces of machined steel with an edge ground into them. The swords also made it easy for enemy soldiers to spot officers from a distance.

I went to Canada last month and decided to drive through Detroit. It honestly wasn't the worst looking city out there. The only downside was that it was totally empty and the only broken down houses I saw were the ones that were the closest to the streets. then there's the whole crime thing but that's for another day
