Re: Sageo Help

Hi blademaster, i realised i said id give you feedback on how it went, but in the end i decided to keep it how it was rather than shorten it. I dont think it looks too bad this way, but thanks anyway. I read in another post that you have an impressive collection of swords, do you have any photots on...

Re: Sageo Help

Valid point, although the sageo disforms very quickly as i found out from the 4x4 knot fail, but here are some pictures of it, do you think the left over cord is too long? (sorry for the very bad quality, taken on an old phone) http://img197.imageshack.us/img197/2417/image015ai.jpg http://img255.ima...

Sageo Help

Hi all I just tied my new sageo in the display knot, at the moment it is a 3x3 knot however have alot of cord left. I tried a 4x4 knot but there wasnt enough cord to run through the knots. Is it ok to cut the ends off? or will that ruin the cord? It's only artificial silk as i couldnt find the colou...

Re: Shinto Katana Question

thanks for that insight, i agree it is not as important as other details, but i know enough about the general quality now so was just getting more info on it. As for the BoHi, this is no issue, i dont have much cutting experience and wouldnt put the blade through it, atleast not on full tatami Look ...

Re: Shinto Katana Question

i must have missed that customer sale, unmatched price suprised it is still there! Is the shinto on sale a discontinued or older model? I would have thought the swords change slightly over time. Also Loz would it be too much to ask for some pictures of the katana? I wouldnt normally ask but with it ...

Shinto Katana Question

Ok, so i have shifted from wanting the replica 'demon' sword, to the ppk, and now to the shinto katana, i have convinced myself to go for something more aesthetic. I was amazed by the shinto price on blades-uk as it is the cheapest of the sites i have recently been on. However it claims to be the or...

Re: Bill's Demon Sword Replica

i have decided on the practical plus for now, however wanted a nice table stand, like the 'Black Lacquer Japanese Sword Display', I was wondering if you had the stand that just carries the katana with the padded shelf rather than the one on the site. If so I'l get to ordering it within the next few ...
