I randomly came across demonstration videos from these guys who make swords and knives..

Not sure how I feel about them using meat carcasses but either way, it's astonishing to see what these weapons are capable of. You wouldn't want to miss and accidentally catch your leg... ohmy.gif

Cold Steel makes great weapons. The man in the nice clothing always makes me laugh. He acts so ridiculously serious. I still wouldn't want to mess with him though...

Oh yeah, and my favourite is the rapier!!! It is so amazingly sharp. I cannot wait until the day I get my hands on it(I was in fencing for six years).

That is crazy, I have a question tho! biggrin.gif

Is there a reason behind cutting it in a downward angle?

I'd imagine it's purely to do with gravity and making a cut that sails through the target, rather than a cut that is horizontal and then gets stuck.. at least that's my guess anyway smile.gif

Check out the Apokatana. I am going to get the Ferrous Wolf. I have a slight obsession with Vikings, so that sword might actually be kind of cool. These swords can actually cut through the hood of a car. They are ridiculously well-made.

For people who love weapons, definitely check these two sites out:

They are. My friend has some of their discontinued products. His girlfriend has one called the Squid Axe. It is a pretty cool little knife.
