Present for my dad

Post by new-to-this » Fri Jan 20, 2012 5:39 am

Hi, was hoping for a bit of advice as I don't really know what sword to get my dad for his birthday. I have a £120 limit and was thinking of getting him a sword. The one I have seen on here is £114 http://www.blades-uk.com/view_items.php ... 8&start=10 it is the 3rd one from the bottom "Handforged Samurai Sword" is this a good one for the money or could anyone reccomend a different one in that price range.

Cheers Ben

Aye the handforged ones are the perfect price bracket for you, if you want a curve blade id say the handforged samurai sword or the autumn bamboo folded katana, both are curved but the autumn bamboo wins it because of its folded steel and it's patterns are lovely Here's a link to it on te main page
