hope this is it.
QUESTION: hey Paul, how are you? just read the review for the ryumon dragon and i was so entralled we rushed out into the internet and bought one .............we hope.........very often, when reading reviews or threads and realizing if we want one of these, we better hurry, right? .............we go to our favorite sellers and then cannot precisely identify the sword because there wasn't a precise id in the review or the thread we just read..............and to top it all off, sometimes the recommended sellers may confuse matters more by incorporating the actual makers model number into a model or part number that they make up for themselves, i suppose, to confuse window shoppers, i don't know...........or it is a model number that has nothing to do with the makers original id model numbers.
our suggestion is for reviewers, proofreaders?, sellers, and everyone else involved to use the manufacturers original identifying numbers and quit dickin' around with ambiguous identifications...............we think the model number for the dragon by ryumon (there are several ryumon dragons by the way, more confusion)in question is RY3041 ...............we hope............we couldn't even use the weight to help us because everyone has different weights for the same model, oh no!!!.....what's a person to do...........now, we may be completely off the wall here but we didn't notice a definite model# in the review, did we miss it?ANSWER:
Hey guys, you raise an interesting point - especially as many sellers call the Katana they have by a different name and leave the actual model number out of the description.
It's actually the first time it has occured to me that a model number is a good idea.
The model number on this one is RY-3041 if that helps. :-) When I have a free moment I'll try to go through the various reviews and add model numbers where they have them. ^_^
Thanks guys, and talk again soon.
