I'm in love with this series of 'Custer' and 'Musashi' bags from Empire33. In place of traditional purse handles, these bad boys have been outfitted with the handles from an American civil war sword and a Japanese katana sword, respectively.

These Empire33 purses are absolutely badass. Click through the gallery above to see the 'Custer' bags followed by the 'Musashi' bags.

Implications - Aggressive fashion, or items that have been fitted with details inspired by weapons, ammunition and other dangerous iconography, resonates with modern fashionistas who are looking for ways to exhibit their confident and self-assured personalities. Controversial accessories resonate with these consumers, as they match the owners' affinity for uniqueness and individuality.
