Wakizashi, components by Niteshifter Wakizashi, components by Niteshifter
And here's all the components in the wakizashi, fully assembled. There's the sword itself, naturally, the scabbard of course and then a throwing knife and hair piece that fit into the top of the scabbard.

Well, so it's beautifull without being dangerous. xD

I once tried to cut a piece of bamboo with my friend's katana... :| It got stucked to hard I had to saw the bamboo off in order to release the katana.

:ashamed:

haha xD the trouble is there are so many katana replicas out there that just arent built properly, and NONE are built these days to the standards they used to be, which is a shame but not surprising.

Well, I can think in a lot of bad things if they were built like before. I get angry kinda easily, so having a katana right in my hand would not be something nice, I guess.

hehe xD perhaps not. From what I hear the test for a katana's sharpness was to drop a silk cloth over it, if the blade cut it in half as it fell without anyone moving it then it was sharp enough. I don't know if this is true but it's awesome :D

It's indeed impressive and I heard a real swashbuckler should cut three bamboos sticks with a single blow with a katana.

If he managed to do so, both katana and swashbuckler have the peerless features to be the best of their own kind!

and bamboo is tough stuff, we had some growing in the back garden in spain, cutting that stuff back took a machete and 20 minutes.

xD no worries, if you like that you love the 80 year old 12" full tang bowie knife I have and the 200+ year old tuareg forearm dagger, perhaps the actual katana I have at my parents' place too, maybe even my swod cane.

Niteshifter Featured By Owner Feb 28, 2012
xD the bowie is, sharpened it myself, the cane and katana might be getting a bit blunt though and the Tuareg dagger is too delicate to sharpen

hmmmm do you know how to use them? Like the different fighting styles... (I'm not going to try and name them...haha don't know for sure what style goes with what weapon...just like looking at them)

I did a teeny tiny bit of training with the katana but i don't remember the name for it and can't remember the katas, the bowie i use everyday as a work knife, its insanely useful, I'm more of a hand to hand fighting or longsword, those I actually know something about.

Can the blade be replaced by another of higher quality?

I would still get it if just for the beautiful sheath. It looks like something I would design for one of my characters.

And thanks for the link, I am familiar Hanwei swords. Unfortunately my skill level with swords is still unworthy of a Hanwei. I need something less expensive and sharp to practice my draw and cut.

yes, you could easily dismantle the sword and replace the blade, although the sheath is actually painted aluminium :/
