Besides the Lance of Longinus, many other swords and knives were on display. These were mainly replicas from a spin-off novel titled Evangelion ANIMA. The story is set in a world in which the Human Instrumentality Project never started.
In the novel, in order to avoid NERV’s rebellion, Seele prohibits the use of firearms. Due to this, Eva-01, which is called "Stage 2 Eva: Type F", fights using a modified Japanese sword. In any case, seeing Eva units using swords is really beautiful.
For this exhibit, many Japanese sword masters tried to make realistic replicas of these swords. However, the replicas are not just for show; they are real, functional Japanese swords made from tamahagane steel. They are quite a sight to see.
