I guess Chen should take it as a compliment that theyre ripping off his design.

If they were my designs I wouldn't take it as a compliment...I would be pissed. I may take it better if it was put on a nice sword, that would be more of a compliment, to put my work on a nice looking sword. BUt not on crap. 8)

It's a bit like the old highlander katana designs and the cheap knock offs that flooded the market :S

Surely Chen is either getting royalties for this or is in the process of sueing?

Funny enough, was this exact sword (Called Okinawa Katana) my first wallhanger.

it looks ok on the wall, but that is actually all it does.

it cost here in Denmark 650 DKR (£60) but I got it at an auction, and paid only £25

At first glance its a tusnami but minus the grace and simplicity that makes the real one drool inducing.
