    Well, I have a WHOLE lot of swords, and due to someone's request, I'ma show them all off here!

    1) My Chinese Tower Sword

    [​IMG]
    I got it due to the crazy awesome gold texture around it with the colored windows.

    And whats really cool about it is the Double Edged tip:

    [​IMG]
    (Kina hard to see here)

    2) My Japanese Katana:

    [​IMG]

    I like this due to it's toned color and curved blade:

    [​IMG]

    And it's cool engravement:

    [​IMG]


    3) My Nunchucks:

    [​IMG]

    They're just cool, with the dragon designes on them.

    4) My Crazy-ass Dagger:

    [​IMG]

    This thing is just damn crazy.

    [​IMG]

    5) My Lightning Bolt Sword:

    [​IMG]

    Cant get a good focus :wtf:

    6) My Snake Axe:

    [​IMG]

    I especially like this because of the Snake Head on the top!

    [​IMG]

    7) My Dragon Hunting Knife:

    [​IMG]

    This is mainly used for hunting, but I love the design of the sheath and blade:

    [​IMG]

    8) My Skeleton hand Knife:

    [​IMG]

    Just a crazy-ass design.

    9) The Jamaican Hunting Knife:

    [​IMG]

    It's awesome, a nice design and a nice grip and color on the handle.


    10) BUH BUH BAAA! A BALL AND CHAIN!

    [​IMG]

    And heck yes, it's spiked...

    [​IMG]

    11) And for the finally: A pole-arm!

    [​IMG]

    It was really hard to get a good view of the blade on top:

    [​IMG][​IMG]

    But the design on the top sheath is awesome:

    [​IMG]

    Cool, more dragons.



    APPOLOGIES: It got dark after I took a break of photo taking (It's harder when you have shaky hands). So I had to move to the low-light filter, sorry.

    Also, some blurry pics, as I said, I have shaky hands, I may try to redo them tomarrow.

    And another thing. Okay, it's 5:30 in New Jersey right now, and it's darker than midnight, this is nuts.

    One last thing. Wii comes out in 19 days!!

    Actually, a lot of those were pretty cheap. Sword collecting is a very inexpensive hobby. One of my most expensive one is probably the Pole Arm, which came to 18 dollars. But if you go to fancy places to buy them, like authentic chinese stores, they can be somewhat expensive. Like the 3-pronged dagger was about 30 dollars. But some can be very cheap. Like, the Dragon Hunting Knife was about 5 dollars. :yesnod:

    okay Akaymay.... u and me are gonna team up one day, roam a city's streets (i'll be nice and let you choose the city), and we'll attack random people. you with your awesome set of weaponry and me with my fake darth maul lightsaber that is broken in half so basically it's like a normal fake lightsaber in that it only has one 'saber' and it's not really light it's just plastic, so you with your sweet assk (ass w/ a 'k') weapons and me with my fake half darth maul lightsaber that is really only a normal lightsaber..... or maybe i'll use my fists that i'll say have mystical poison powers so people get scared and think that i poisoned them when i punch them so they fall down on the ground and groan in pain and call the poison control center thinking that they are poisoned when really they're not and the poison control center-ers will come and waste all that gas in their nonhybrid cars and they get really angry at the people for crank phone calling them about being poisoned but then i accidentally punch you because we got stuck in this big brawl (not the super smash brothers kind) and then you think you got poisoned because i didnt tell you that i really dont have poisoned hands so you end up going to the poison control center and then you get released because you really arent poisoned...... you hypochondriac..... and because you're a hypochondriac i dont want to hang out with you at all.... so you can forget it

    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 :
    My collection
    Sais
    Nuncucks (Normal ones and colapsable ones)
    3 sectoned staff (Cant use)
    A wakazachi (short sword)
    bokken
    My fists

    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. :lol:

    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!!

    Those arnt swords, those are wall hangers. A good sword is at least 300 to around 5000.


    these are sword collectors. I don't want to poo poo you though, Its a good start, but sword collecting is not inexpensive, its VERY expensive.
    http://www.myarmoury.com/home.php

    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.
