Au contraire my friend, the Sorbus Aucuparia is a bit like the women around Esher, it responds well to a bit of rough handling.

It's the Purple Ito ( does what it says etc. ) http://blades-uk.com/search_results.php?q=purple+ito... about as cheap as they come, but a surprisingly well put together sword at that sort of price ~ a good first sword which I would recommend to anyone. That said I'm looking forward to taking delivery of the Hanwei Raptor that Lawrence has just emailed me to say is on its' way.

He still doesn't get it.
If you don't tell him, he never will.

Sigh,...................
Trimming trees with a katana. :cry:
Eating yellow snow.
Neither will kill you. ;)
But, not really something to admit to, or brag about. :roll:

one afternoon of daftnes no chance
not when you see some pillock trying to cut
throught the biggest cow bone ive ever seen
with a katana then he wonders why it snapped
all this in the presence of his kids who are only
feet away thats something we dont need ever
i hate to think what would have happend had
the piece that snapped of hit one of those children

Mind blowing... children, cats, dogs, beautiful women... and unsheathed steel? Not an equation, is it?

Yes, and after all this time, I'M STILL ON YOU ABOUT YOURS !!!
Especially since unlike SF here, you knew better.

Let me explain.
Among practitioners of the sword arts and serious collectors, triming trees with a katana shows serious disrespect for your blade. Actually you shouldn't trim trees with any kind of sword, but with a katana it is even more of an offense due to the respect shown to the blade in the sword arts.
In reality, it shows an ignorance of knowledge toward bladed weapons.

I don't know what the hell you are talking about. Video what?
