QUESTION: Hello,my name is michael, this is the first time I admit trying this, but hey I have tried everything else so why not. I currently practice tang soo do at middleburg martial arts and I'm looking for that perfect sword yet it's always hard to find such a sword. I'm looking for a good sword that has a full tang so it wont fly out and hit someone, and the hard part of finding this sword is I dont nead a katana, I nead a sword with out a curve and dull ,very dull. I would like the tsuba to be an oval tsuba ..Imagine a buck knife hand guard,that kind of shape. Also Im not looking for a so called
"ninja sword" but more of a korean sword. all around a 100$ budget. I have all the confidence that you can help me.
Thank You again for your help and keep up the good work
ANSWER: Hi Michael,
The big issue is - no one really makes Korean swords at a low price point, despite the fact that the Korean Martial Arts are extremely popular and there is definitely the demand...
Personally, I am not aware of any company that makes what you are looking for - however if anyone else who reads this one knows, let us know.
Sorry I couldn't be more help - I'm not confident, but hopefully someone else will be able to assist with your quest.
