Full samurai armour set

If I had a bigger house and much deeper pockets I'd certainly invest in this stunning set, I know James will mess his pants looking at this as I recall him mentioning it, if you have a spare 2 grand jim it could be yours

Nope, there's no such thing as a 'license' needed to buy any sword but some blades may require proof of membership of a registered martial art club or re-enactment society etc. with the necessary third party insurance cover and this is made clear with listings of such blades on the main site. ;)

Far from it, shinsaku-to (new art swords) made of real tamahagane smelted in a tatara in Yokota City, Western Honshu under the supervision of the NBTHK were the first to be exempt from the initial sword ban but be prepared to fork out £15k+ for one.

Makes ya wonder why somebody would type all that crap just to get a link to 'hot women' on the forum, huh? :roll:
