Episode 19 – A Tale of Two Swords

The ancient chronicles of Japan speak of a sword called Kusanagi, an enchanted blade wielded by the gods and handed down to their descendants. Allegedly hidden in a shrine and only called upon during the Emperor’s coronation, its authenticity remains a topic of debate. Joining it in legendary status is the Honjo Masamune, often called the finest samurai sword ever crafted; current whereabouts unknown. In this lost artifact double feature, I try to figure out where the truth lies in legend.

A lake. A train. A tragedy at sea. A message in a music score. This episode examines four mysteries surrounding the Nazi’s final ploy: the secreting of billions of assets, mostly in gold bullion and ingots, to fund a Nazi insurgency long after the war had ended.
