Tori series

Post by Geordie Ross » Mon Sep 05, 2011 9:08 pm

Hi guys it's my birthday soon and I feel like treating myself on a top blade and I've overheard moon raving about the tori series and I've got a few questions :>
Firstly is the steel folded? I've seen it on a different site in the folded section, which I won't even call a competitor site as the prices are far far far from competitive.
Secondly what is best of the series? The original tori, the tori XL or the tori XL light? And what's the difference?
Lastly out of 100 what would you score it?
This sword caught my eye a few year back with it's brownish leather Ito and purist performance qualities, I've noticed this topic is sounding like an exam but there's not many independent reviews on the net and would like some quality well informed knowledge from you guys, if at all possible :mrgreen:
Cheers people Ross

The performance XL ones are folded either with bohi (light) or without. I have a few of each with the odd very minor scuff on the scabbard for £350 each, otherwise perfect, one 1-3mm scratch per scabbard, were £913, £350 is well below even the original cost price . . . It feels like I'm holding out my wrists here and handing you a knife to slit them with, yes it's financial sepaku on these lol
