Re: WE'RE BACK

Bring on the Chen's woohoo. Now I'm sorry to lower the tone of the mood but I have one concern, and that is the availability of cheap -£100 'hand made' swords? Surely once the government see's the country getting filled with such weapons again will they not move to make another amendment? Worse sti...

Re: Which sword? Please help

Only problem being I haven't actually given it to my bro yet as he hasn't got his 3rd Dan yet. I just wanted to make sure I bought the sword before the ban came, and as he is due to grade this year, I thought It'd be fine. Oh sh*t, what with that POSSESSION business, does that mean I can't actually...

Re: Western sword advice

Your Welcome, Albion do make some top quality reproduction Western, Medieval and European swords but there not cheap, a standard single handed broadsword would probably set you back at least £500 and if you want a scabbard for it it's normally a 2 1/2 month - 2 year wait depending on what type of sc...
