It is always lovely to get the unexpected when unwrapping presents Christmas morning and the Katana Bookends are just that.

Cleverly concealed metal stands are hidden beneath the front covers of a paperback book at each end of your shelf, leaving the books securely in place.  Then comes the true magic of this gift, the katana, which is separated into two pieces, the handle and the ‘sword’.  Now, do not worry, the ‘sword’ is blunt and made of plastic, with a magnet hidden in the end of it.  The magic – both the handle and sword are magnetic, meaning they stick, seemingly as if a Katana has been thrust through the books themselves.

This is truly the perfect gift for any ninja, martial arts fan or dare I say fan of The Walking Dead series, the books would look fabulous with Michonne’s weapon protruding from either end!
