Has anyone got the PC Orchid? I've got my eye on that one as it looks amazing. I was wondering how it compared to the GO? Hey I wonder if the PC range will be included in the Jan sale? Lets hope so!

Daiga-whatsisname ( :oops: ) has the Orchid Katana.

It's a folded blade, which the GO isn't, I think they're different lengths as well. There's a Wakizashi and Tanto to go with it, too...

That's no bad thing, my parent's wouldn't let me have a catapult when i was your age, and you will get some nice safe practice from an Iaito blade.

The Orchid katana is damn nice! I can see why its got a reputation for being a bit 'girly', the tsuka is quite slight at the end. However i wouldn't go so far as to say its a lesser sword, its still feels fairly hefty for a katana and cuts like a dream, definitely worth consideration at least.

Ok....here goes.

Crappy Denix Katana bought on holiday in the canaries in 03 (good thing about it is that its all metal, no plastic, save for the saya. Nice for display not much else. Cost me 70 euro thats about 50 quid right? Good value if you consider I hadda buy a bag to get the b*d back into the country.

Crappy denix set, quite nice, same set as the guy with the tanto set's top tanto. Okish quality, first true katanas i owned.

Denix Excalibur, good quality, love the ring when she comes from her scabbard. SCHRRRRRRRING Blade is rubbish looking, looks like someones railings, all patchy etc. I like to call it faux damascus ;-)

Denix Fantasy Dagger, companion to the Seigfried sword. Ok quality, blade a bit scratched.

Claymore, SS thou looks the part, leather scabbard.

PC Golden Oriole, pride of my collection. What really needs said about this sword?

And finally tonight, me being a tit in a housecoat. Notice the bandaged fingers, thats what happens when you play with your GO irresponsibly.
