A person, usually high school to college aged young white or Asian male, who purchases weapons, such as samurai swords, maces, spears, scimitars, fancy looking knives, daggers, and nun-chucks at a shopping mall, usually from stores like Merlot's Cutlery, China Capital Arts, or various privately owned Oriental gift shops. Will talk trash to each other about the quality of their swords, which they will never use for anything in real life. Some of these people will pay high prices to purchase "better" swords on the internet, in the range of $300 to several thousand dollars, to out-do their friends or enemies who bought their blades at the local shopping mall. These people are often goths, thugs, or kids who are at the bottom of the social totem poll.
