So I'm in the market for a Katana. I have had a few novelty swords before but now I want a real one. Or as real as I can get it, I think It's reffered to as "Battle Ready". Now Of Course I dont want a battle ready Katana to go play ninja, I just want one because I just simply want the bragging rights. When Somebody grabs it from my mantle and starts unsheathing it from the scabbard, I want to be able to say "Hey be careful, That shit will cut you"! So anyway I'm scowering the net trying to find one with a budget of about $600.00 to work with. I come across this video posted above from a company named Cold Steel. In it they test the blade cutting a ton of different stuff demstrating that the blade will not dull even up to 1000 cuts on pigs, rope, tatami mats and a variety of other things. They even put it in a vice. and bend the sword as far as they can and do pull ups on with it and it doesnt bend but springs back and keeps it's shape perfectly. Needless to say the Katana is badass. And I think I'm going to purchase it. Now I know that they could use a load of different swords to do this and edit it carefully but after reading about it on other sites I think I'm Sold on it. If anyone has worked with this company before I would sure love some feedback!
