    A samurai sword really classes up an edged weapon attack. :yes: A machete can be purchased at Walmart. :jayzus:

    I am going to research the # of incidents in the state of WA. It is unreal. I looked it up once, just the other day a woman killed her boyfriend with a sword, he was cheating on her.
    Periodically there is an incident where "A man with a sword has shut down traffic"
    I need to research samuri sword incidents nation wide.

    I'm going to go out on a limb and say Tyler Texas will be mentioned at some point. Any weird criminal shit that can be conceived of will occur in Tyler Texas for some mysterious reason.

    "real" as in an historic piece/signed master work, or real as in crafting methods?
    because the latter starts at under $350...

    1. I spelled Samurai incorrectly
    2. Some incidents are just swords
    3. I will begin posting them in no order.

    hmmm.....I'm intrigued! Like my longbow, this is a weapon I can practice with without upsetting my neighbors. Then again my wife thinks I'm "accident prone" so I don't know.
    You break your hand one time playing "ultimate frisbee" and you're branded as accident prone. Okay I do have a shit-ton of stitches too so maybe she's on to something here.
    Regardless/irregardless I would like to try one out. I'm sure I could learn the technique from youtube.

    Some of these that I havent' posted are just sad. I am done for now. I thought there was another incident of a man wielding a sword in Seattle, but maybe not.

    Just remember with a katana, it's push with your top hand, pull with your bottom hand.

    so, more high end? They're gorgeous collector's pieces, but I'd feel bad getting one scuffed....
    It'd be kind of like starting your gun collection with a brown bess that's never been fired-and then doing whatever the gun equivalent of playing in the mud with it is.

    no matter. whatever direction or degree blade collecting takes you, enjoy.
