Skiing with Samurai Katana Looks Deadly

Who needs ski poles when there are swords? Recently, Freestyle skier Shogo Kawano donned samurai armour for a photo shoot and some downhill skiing. According to Kawano, the armour weighed about 25kg. Add add in a katana, and you've got a tricky stunt to pull off.

"You pray you don't stab yourself with the katana lol," Kawano wrote on his Facebook page.
