I have a 34″ wall hanger behind me. Fucking edges were not even ground in; just 1/16″ of flat steel along the sides. Also since it wasnt ground right it weigs more than 5# for a blade that should weigh less than 3.
Also have a 40″ that was made close to correct. The crossguard is a bit sloppy which is the only defect. that one has a nice hand made wooden scabard the ex father in law made for it with a sword belt.
The people I know who do are into the Japanese style of sword. I like the rapier and others. Seen some footage on youtube of a guy with rapier and dagger, the two weapons and his tactics were fascinating. Top skill. I’m into Dune a lot. The Fremen all have knives. Blades are just so cool.
