he also just said it whold be good to but a katana for later on.


Are you sure he didn't say it'd be good to buy one later on? If you're going to buy one, I'd pick out what you like/can afford then ask your instructor if they're suitable - otherwise you've wasted a lot of cash.

What he lacks physically, he certainly makes up for in spirit. There's a lesson there somewhere. What a guy.

When I used to go shooting there was a woman from the para-olympics archery team who practiced with her longbow there. I'm not sure what her disability was, but she walked like she may have false legs.

The monitor I'm using now is a 17" TFT and 60 is fine for me. I've just changed it to 75 and it seems to have emboldened the text. Other than that I can't notice much difference.

I was pleased with it. :D I expected the handle to be flat, but it's quite comfortable. It's a sturdy little thing, but I suppose you'd expect that from CS. It cost about £40

I'm not taking anyones side here, and I don't want to get too involved in this discussion which is none of my business, but I think I have a valid point to make. Some of the confidence I have in BUK comes from the fact people on the forum are allowed to criticise some of the products. The vast major...
