This is a bit of longshot, but we'll see. I'm what you might call a swordsmanship enthusiast. I'm not a deluded anime fan or a nut, if you really question my credentials feel free to badger me with any questions you may have relating to functionality, metallurgy, use, etc ...I'm game and I'm aware how many inferior stainless steel wallhangers infect the market, so they quest to purchase a functional, capable, cutting, weapon can be a bit daunting... At the moment I'd be willing to part with one European hand a half sword. This model specifically, if there is sufficient interest, we could talk about sundry daggers and a katana.
I am interested in honesty and want you to know what you're getting into. Here is full on, practical review, with pictures of test cut results by a personal friend.http://sbgswordforum.proboards70.com/index.cgi?board=swordreviews&action=display&thread=1170390707
