some help please :)

Postby Sagaris » Sun Feb 27, 2011 6:09 pm

Hi Loz,(or anyone else that can help)
me and a friend have just begin kenjutsu and we are looking for suitable blades to purchase, i have find some very nice swords on the site but I was looking at the united cutlery website and found a United Black Kogane Dynasty Forged Katana Damascus(link to it below)

http://www.unitedcutlery.com/ProductDetail.aspx?itemno=UC2579&cat=UC

would it be possible to get one of these in stock? and if so how much would it be?


Also my friend wishes to know

About the "Huang Ninja Sword":
- What material is the Tsuba made of?
- Is it full tang?
- Is it functional?
- Can I see a picture of the blade?

About the "Ikazuchi Damascus Katana":
- Is it full tang?
- Is It functional?


thanks for your time and help,

Sagaris

hi sagaris
heres a couple of answers for you
all the ninja/katanas here are full tang the tsubas are usually some form of alloy
are they usable well for safteys sake i,d say extreemly light cutting only (pop bottles full of water
cardboard tubes the odd ninja watermellon or surley cuccumber nothing more than that
untill your told by somone who knows more than me about such things best talk to loz or wait till a guy called moon
turns up s for your question about the sword from united and the ikasuchi
best call lawrence on the number on the home page

join a dojo, they're dotted about all over the place, the bigger associations websites usually have lists of locations.

N:B It will be a couple of years before you can buy an edged sword whether you're licenced or not, of course, it will probably be a good couple of years before your sensei will deem you ready to use one if you study one of the traditional arts.
