Eh?: Pack a pint and learn

The next event in the St. Louis County Historical Society’s “History in a Pint” series is pretty sharp.

“More than War Souvenirs: Reflections on Minnesota’s WWII Veterans and Their Japanese Swords” is set for May 29 at 6 p.m. at Carmody Irish Pub, 308 E. Superior St.

Thomas Buck has been performing restoration and research on Japanese swords for more than 20 years, and is ready to discuss the history, symbolism and construction of Japanese swords, along with the WWII veterans who brought them back.
