:roll: Any one have an answer to my question? Does this apply to all handmade curved blades greater than 50cm or does this just extend to samurai style swords? I'd love to see the cold steel bagua and the chen song sword available again.

Chen stuff yes, Coldsteel I doubt its handmade most likely CNC made, Like Albion swords ;)

I got a CS sword its nice but in no way handmade like the Paul Chen's or Bugei Swords

Our Warrior Series addresses this problem directly. In our efforts to reduce the costliness of the blades, we have omitted the expensive mirror polishing that we used on our Imperial Swords to create a new series of Japanese swords with a more practical finish.

The Warrior Series swords are very handsome in their own right and share the same steel, heat treatment, and sharpness as their more expensive Imperial counterparts. Like the Imperial swords, they have Samé covered, cord wrapped handles and quality fittings.


Thats what it says on the ColdSteel Site ;)

Oh God Oh God.....I thought I'd finished with this sword business and now I'm tempted back again. The Oren sword is calling me quite loudly......
If I eat frugally for the next few weeks I an probably afford it.....Anyway, bloody good news on the change in the law....
