that bronze katana is a bit of alright

Postby Lone Wolf » Fri Mar 01, 2013 10:33 am

I'm cleaning it now very impressive I think it's up there with my ppk, its very solid.

Not sure about this chinese serpent sword I know nothing, its very heavy I think but it looks nice can't really say more then that maybe I should buy a book on chinese weapons.

Before anyone asks no pictures, ive not even cleaned it yet.

I'm busy I got my finger stuck somewhere and spent several hours with an old electric toothbrush trying to clean something.

I'm not done yet not by a long way. Loading is slow on a tablet.

It's dark in here so I've had to use the flash for all.

Well while its loading, it's reall big about 47 inches in total, it weight is about 2 kg maybe a bit more, the blade is plain no pattern of any kind and is solid its not a flexable, the decorative bits look nice but on close examination there is some visible glue in places and a few rough bits not removed from the molding type, the wood looks rustic warts and all sort not coated so you can see all the grain and pits etc. Don't know what else to say, it looks nice, wouldn't put it on my sword stand, never seen a jian on a katana stand only a vertical one, must be a reason for that so I'll have to get one and a book about chinese swords so I know what the hell I'm looking at.

Fine thats all they are good for really you don't realise how much you miss a backspace until its taken from you, using your fingers is a right pain and not all websites allow zooming so you can get the cursor in the right place.

Actually most of the problems are the internet itself had the same trouble with the pc because thats linux and the websites all think your on a phone, mobile phone view looks awful on a tablet.

I got a samsung galaxy tab, there was a cashback offer at the time, if I was to buy one now I'd get the asus transformer it comes with a keyboard, proper keyboard stay away from them MS surface things they are sh*t.

Oh and thats another thing I think its because of lack of ram I have to put the pictures on one at a time, if I just keep adding them to a none submitted thread the whole post blanks after about 4, leaned that the hard way.
