Re: Photos Of Kill Bill Sword as promised

Since you are now entering the world of Japanese swords, you should know there is a certain etiquette (reiho) to displaying a katana (proper way of display) The katana should be displayed blade up, tsuka (hilt) to the left of the blade while displayed on a katana kake (sword stand) while still sheat...

Re: why i like cold steel

Those aren't sinkholes. Those folk down in Florida went and opened the Gates of Hell. Look at those pictures of that guy's house! Talk about "Drag me to Hell"! Remember that guy a short while back they caught chowing down on a homeless man's face under a bridge? Yep, Florida. Shot him multiple times...

Re: Try tying one of these when the sageo is...

Just a word here. You should invest in a awl (looks like a icepick) to line up tsuka with katana ana (hole) or use chopsticks to line them up. (awl works better) You shouldn't have routed the hole out bigger, if later you get a rattle in your tsuka, you will now know why. Also since you didn't menti...

Re: Yet Another Newbie

Mick, Everybody always forget about the stickies. I would assume many noobs don't even know what a stickie is? Although Moon is right, always direct the noobs to the stickies as they are they best overall and comprehensive answer. Speaking of cleaning your sword with alcohol though, goose told me he...

Re: Yet Another Newbie

Would you suggest a solvent-based cleaner Dot? Actually you just helped me prove a point here. ;) What I was worried about was, hexO wiping his sword down with alcohol thinking he cleaned it to stop it from rusting. The impression I got from his answer. He makes no further mention of then oiling or...

Re: Yet Another Newbie

To apply any kind of alcohol to a blade will remove "all" oils from the blade, as well as other substances. If you clean any blade in this manner (except stainless) you had beter immediately apply a new layer of oil or similar preservative or this will cause oxidation (rust) In other words, don't cl...

Re: RIP Alvin Lee

This is one of them "Where were you back then?" moments.
To live in interesting times.
Probably music's brightest hour.
Never before or nothing since, has been as interesting or enthralling.

Do you know why they do this? BECAUSE THEY CAN!!!! This is one way of the many, the government controls you. This is any government, not just the UK.

Re: Ukulele

Bob,
If you would want me to perform an Iron Fan Dance, you would have to take up playing the Biwa instead of Ukulele. :D
How cool would that be?
Afterwards, I could demonstrate all the martial techniques hidden in the dance on you to the audience. ;)
