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.

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.
