There have been many collaborations with the popular Japanese science-fiction manga and animated series “Evangelion,” which have resulted in a range of licensed products — from eye drops to pachinko machines. For this touring exhibition, the series collaborates with the traditional craft of Japanese swordsmithing.

The Japanese sword has always been considered more than just a weapon. Created by skilled craftsmen, they are seen as works of art — and forging blades is still an evolving artistry. For this unique modern take on the traditional Japanese sword, 30 “Evangelion”-inspired blades have specially been created by today’s artisans; July 3-Sept 16.
