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.
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
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.
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.
