:D
Absolutely gorgeous!
The Grosse Messer looks like a beast, easily able to cut a man in two!
What is the quality of the CS O Katana in comparison to Hanwei or B-UK?

sorry pass :dunno:
hi dave
here,s a pic of the (fromleft to right)

the 1830 napoleon
the 1796 light cavalry sabre,s
and the grosse messer
Image

yes both the o katana and warrior katana are worth putting on your list the only main difference
is the blade on the o katana is 7 ins longer its also thicker and wider than the warrior katana
but the quality of the finish on both blades is the same and yes I would put bothon par with the
high end chens if not slightly better but that's just my opinion.

hi dave
because of the fit and finish being 100% all round the first two would have to be
the o katana and the warrior katana then 3 4 5 would be anyones guese as they are
equall in fit and finish the only minor niggles I have about the napoleon and the 1796
light sabre is they are not as described in the official blurb from cold steel i.e. there supposed
to have wooden liners in the scabbard not so its just two strips of polythene with double sided sticky pads
on each strip to stop any rattles apart from that theres no problems with either the grosser I got wasn't the one I was
hoping for but that's not a problem for me I got the one with the blued steel blade proper blueing by the way
not the epoxy coated crap (its from the man at arms cold steel range with proper rosewood handle scales)
the other has the polished steel blade with rosewood handle scales as an aside note the blued steel version look like
it can be completely stripped down for cleaning etc due to the chicargo type screws on the handle scale and another similer type on the pommel where the polished blade version cant be due to the normal rivets holding it all together
heres a pic theres a third similar screw fitting not shown in the end of the pommel

Image

heres the handle on the normal polished blade version two standard pressed rivets and no thired rivet on the pommel
holding it to the tang I presume its threaded its self and screwed on direct to the tang

Excellent!
I also shows that what you may think is a better version is not always so, your version of the Grosse Messer is far better than the one you wanted originally, double win!

too right my friend I sure aint dissapointed so for your edification check out the cold steel
man at arms range bet theres at least a couple of items there that will tickle your fancy
for sure check out the man at arms messer (not the grosse messer) but the one called the messer
product code (88gssm) it sure puts most bowie,s to shame:D
