I buy exclusively with Albion and ATrim (the latter usually via Christian Fletcher). I'm a stickler for having -real- swords that look, feel, and handle like real swords. No offense to anyone here - but I seriously do not want some clunky, overweight crowbar that's going to break if I breathe on it too hard to be marring my collection.


And I want to stress the safety lesson Username brought forth -- swords are NOT TOYS. Do not take them into the backyard to 'hit things.' Do not swing them around, especially with other people nearby. Treat a sword, even a piece of crap like BudK sells, with the same respect that you would treat a loaded gun. A sword, in whatever form or style, is a -weapon- and is, therefore, inherently dangerous.
Forge not works of art but swords of death, for therein lies great art.

I'll take missed sarcasm for $200, Alex. :lol:

Statement: A sword is just a piece of metal, sharp metal mind you, but it is virtually harmless when it just sits there waiting to be picked up, but when a human being picks it up and holding it THEN it becomes deadly not sooner not later, same goes for a gun, it just doesn't fire for itself(sentry with computer aside)

But I still agree on you that it should be treated with utmost respect, although I have more respect for a real sword then a $200 toy crowbar in custom shape, while the latter could still hurt you you won't have as much pain as when your hit with a decent sword
