Happy Mr. & Mrs.

Post by liquidator96 » Fri Dec 02, 2011 5:19 pm

Many, many, many thanks to Lawrence for having such brilliant stock & outstanding service,
many thanks also to Geordie Ross & Mick for your advice, it greatly helped me with my decision.
I purchased 2 swords, the Huang ninja for myself & the Blue Dragon sword for the wife, I also ordered one of the unique Damascus Hunter knives for myself, (I got an Elk Ridge Bowie from
B-UK earlier this year).
The swords are great! The wife is so happy with her first sword & the colour of the saya is deeper than in pics, it really stands out.
I'm chuffed to bits with my Huang, the pear wood saya gives, IMO, the effect of being antiquated.
The Damascus Hunter, (WD2), is stunning, the pattern of the steel, the shape of the blade & the stag antler handle exude quality & the best thing about it is the fact that it's one-of-a-kind.
If anyone is thinking about buying one of these knives, but is unsure, I would say don't hesitate, they are truly magnificent.
As I mentioned, I bought my wife an Elk Ridge Bowie earlier this year, another great quality knife, I would also recommend these knives as well.
The blades all arrived oiled & were sharp from the get-go, I removed the oil & applied a coat of Renaissance Wax, (I may have put a bit too much on, but it will buff out).
All in all we could not be happier, Thank You again gentlemen for all your help,
Best Wishes, Martin. :D :D

Wow I'm supprised that the etched hamons are so convincing, the two swords are beautiful and that Damascus hunter is my favourite of the lot, the stag antler Handel looks too good
