As he enters the shop, Yojimbo notices all sorts of weapons. As he looks around, he does notice the spirit Daisho as well as a few random Japanese style vibro blades as a beautiful Zhanmadao blade.
Yojimbo looks over the different weapons with admiration, and stops when he sees the Spirit Diasho. If one could read his emotions, one would feel turmoil inside of the armored giant, as the memories flood back, just as fresh as if they happened yesterday... memories of the ronin and the two beautiful children - three people that were very close, and very dear to Yojimbo - gone, in a flash. The giant looks down for a moment as he remembers what happened.
It happened so quickly... and they were gone so fast...
He snaps back to reality, forcing away the all-too-fresh pain and sense of loss our of his head, and moving on to the next piece, a real show stopper Zhanmadao blade.
"Hajimemashite, Zo'Wor Kulot'te"

With a flourish and a bow, ”My name is Zo'Wor Kulot'te. I am a collector and retailer of exotic weapons, and I dabble in making them.” He turns and picks up the weapon. ”Please try it. I have space just here. I will try to explain as you regard the weapon.” He moves to the back of the shop.
he says, while bowing politely. As before, if the Devilman looks confused or does not appear to know what Yojimbo said, he provides a helpful translation: "It is a pleasure to meet you."
He then takes out an empty book (for writing or drawing), and begins scribbling in it, taking notes about everything the shopkeeper has said, and will say, for the foreseeable future.
He takes the sword from the shopkeeper and follows him to the back where there is room to "feel" the blade through handling.

Yojimbo tests the blade, going through a few moves, admiring the craftsmanship. "This is a very nice blade indeed. Well balanced and of fine craftsmanship. Thank you for allowing me to test it."
he says to Zo'Wor, bowing, and then adds the notes about Techno-Wizardry to his book.
Ahh, now this - this may be just the item I need.

He holds a 2H katana out by the hilt. When Yojimbo touches it, he feels the magic in it. When he concentrates, the blade ignites in flame.
Yojimbo marvels at the blade, being careful to avoid the flame, but fascinated nonetheless.
"A mix of technology and magic, you say? I see - even feel the magic, though I cannot say that I see the technology in this one. Is it miniaturized or hidden somehow?"
he asks the proprietor.
Yojimo will also ask the D'norr what the prices of the Zhanmadao and Katana are, and write those down in his book as well. He will also ask the Devilman the costs of getting the weapons silver-plated, or if he knows of a place that will do the requested work.
