QUESTION: I'm Ben im a fellow aussie i live in wollongong NSW, and i have recently takin up studying bushido and entering the way of the sword, i practice the way verry intently and have a freind who has started it awso i have many othere freinds wanting to do it also and later this year i will be opening my school of bushido to the public because there is a surprising portion of people intrested.
I have recently perchesd my first sword for christmas and am impressed with how much of a beating its realy taking from my unskilled hands and are impressed with its abilitys of still being able to cut verry impressively after such punishment i purchased it of a
web site called www.globalgear.com its an australian site and they sell a massive line of swords from realy high end brands to brands youve never herd of.
I am building my own forge to make my own swords but am verry new to it and i am serching for my first permanent katana that will last a verry long time of rigures cutting but in a resmable price range i have come across the G-600 dragon katana (http://www.globalgear.com.au/prod1815.htm)
and was woundering what you thought or if u had a better sugestion please help.
Now i am a descent fan of your site im on here daily if not every 3 days seeing whats knew and ive come across swords that you thought were well lets say absoultly a descrace to even being called a sword but i was woundering if you had kept those swords and i am perticly talking about the katana's because and i know its a bit of an ask but i am intrested in those swords to practice my forgeing on them and repair and give a much better edge and harder edge to them if you could help it would be tremendsly apretiated.
My final word is i am verry intrested in the Shobu Zukuri kurome sword u have and was woundering what the deal was with shipping to aus.
ANSWER: G'day Ben,
Good luck with the school and everything. The forging sounds like a lot of fun, I hope everything goes well with that too - keep me informed! :-)
As to the used swords, most I give away to my friends, or those that are not too badly damaged I sell on ebay from time to time. I don't really have any spare at the moment so to speak, still a few more tests in mind... ;-)
But anyway, thanks for asking and talk to you later.
