QUESTION: I have seen that a cold steel gross messer can cut through a phone book i was wondering if a chenness shura or a kaze could do it also i think it would be a great test for both the swords cutting abilty
ANSWER: Hi Joe,
Good question - I haven't actually tried! Next time I do a review of a Cheness, I might try it and see - I imagine the swords like the SGC would have no trouble. It would not be appropriate for a differentially hardened Katana like the Kaze (they are specialized to cut traditional targets - which equal the consistency of human flesh and bone, not phone books) but you never know.
