Re: If wishes were knives.........

How long have all the things like bailsongs and paratrooper blades been illegal? Switchblades and gravity knives were banned in 1959; balisongs were added in 1989... https://www.gov.uk/government/uploads/system/uploads/attachment_data/file/186911/Knives_and_offensive_weapons_information_GDS_FAQ.pdf...

Re: If wishes were knives.........

As we all know, in the U.K. there are many knives & swords that are banned, I personally don't agree with the bans & if I could wish one ban to be lifted it would be for........... The Balisong!

Re: Folded Dragon Katana (21) vs Paul Chen PPK

No contest IMO. :|

The PPK definitely does not disappoint, it's been going for yonks and is still highly regarded at it's price point, the only problem you may have is that you'll probably want the whole Chen range of katana too...that's not a bad thing though. ;)

Re: Nodachi

Hi Moon, Thanks for the input how were you able to deduce that? Cheers, Jag The hada is all wrong, it's far too 'loose' and exaggerated, akin to what is commonly but mistakenly called 'Damascus' these days, Japanese hada in this particular style (Mokume) is much tighter and more subdued. There does...

The only thing I can state about this sword with any certainty is that it was not made in Japan.

Re: Engraved brass plaque finally arrives

Daisho As already mentioned, a daisho (lit. "big/small") is the katana/wakizashi or katana/tanto pair that was one of the outer attributes of the samurai.
