Re: The Samurai Sword thread

I also notice some new and well priced katana's in the handforged section.

The snake kat is something else though, gotta be my current fav.

Re: The Samurai Sword thread

Muchos gracias prabs. I'l be honest I have done some light chopping in the yard but I was as careful as I could be (made sure no one was in close proximity and that each slice was precise) I now know the correct way to hold a katana and a good posture, I've been good and not skyved my kendo class. :...

Is this about me? :|

Re: Prabs pictures of collection of katanas , and short review
