Like, the Dragon Hunting Knife was about 5 dollars.
    Lol
    Obvesoly you dont go for quality weaponds
    my bro got one sword once (about 30) I went at a wooden plank with it and the blade snaped
    Most swords you can buy are rubbish you have to import from Japan to get the best
    But I have to test them in person before I buy (mine are for training only)

    Edit :

    I actually get all my swords straight from Japan, I know someone there and he knows a blacksmith, so he just sends them all to me, and I send the requested amount of money back.


    Wii pocket money=$273.00
    Bank Account=$1.23
    Money owed to parents = $25.00

    Okay, you won't belive this, but his name is Shigeru. He used to work at a Farmer's market a little down the road from me, and he makes bi-monthly (Twice a month) Trips back to his hometown in Japan, and just picks them up for me from one of those ritual blacksmiths. But since he isn't allowed to bring them on the plane, he mails them to me and for some reason, he asks for money send to house in Japan.

    ALSO, I forgot to mention, On the Jamacian Hunting knife, I was messing around with it, and ended up cutting off 4 centimeters into my finger...

    So just a reminder, this swords are meant for SHOW! Dont tell your parents I told you that you can be deadly with them!!

    also not true. Most swords that are good come from India i think well at least windless steel, but the swords you are talking about are around a few grand, from the national treasures of japan (maybe 100 grand). The ones the government pays to make swords, for the sake of keeping the culture and the secrets of sword making alive. They only make 1 or so a year, so its Really expensive. all other swords from japan pritty much suck, although i know their are exceptions. Katanas are not blessed by god though. In fact they were used be sharp and fight unarmed opponents, while longwords are not as sharp, but can take a beating and can strike metal on metal much better the katana, and absorbed the blow through bending and springing.

    They are just different, and used for different purposes, but no matter how good the sword is, if you don't hit it on the primary (or was it secondary) node, it may damage the sword

    I would be worried about using a cheap sword, Those probably shatter and imbed in your chest, like that qvc guy.
