Does handmadeswords.com make good swords?
by Sean Happenny
QUESTION: I've read your pages about buying real swords and the difference between functional ones from SLO's. handmadeswords swords appear to have all the things needed in a good sword: heat tempered, high carbon steel (1045, 1060, & 1095), full tang, less than 3 lbs, and have real hamons.
I searched the internet and only got one good result, saying he's heard both good and bad things about them. Do you have any experience with them or heard anything about them?
I'm thinking of buying a katana for my birthday...
Well, I pretty much heard the same thing. But there is plenty of info on my forums about them here
that should answer your questions.
Hope this helps.
