    The philisophical aspects of what martial arts has molded the man I've become is priceless my old friend ! I've learned the true value of life , the patients of granite , the will to do anything possible and to respect all life .

    My father bred me to fail , he'd built a rock ....! And you forget , I never bring a knife to a gun fight !

    I hear they banned guns in Detroit ........:p Those swords were not very good quality nor exspensive to buy . Fact is they would have never withstood the one blow from a quality blade . They were quickly mass produced with very low quality control . Effective in close quarters but would never withstand much blunt force , these were not the choice of a true swordsman , only the highest ranking would weild a quality blade the others would suffice with much lesser weaponry .

    Banned or not , the common flea market would be the place to easily find them .

    I had a good friend back then that was a flea market participant, heck , even gave me a cheap kit flint-lock pistol to stamp some fake text and patina , LOL ....:D He was a scam artist . I think I paid fifteen dollars for my first WW II Katana . It was missing the Sata - scabbard , Tsuba - hand guard , Tsuka - handle , the Seppa and Habaki - spacer and blade spacer .

    I basically bought just the blade for $15 . Working in a custom machine shop made it easy to fabricate the missing parts . Low quality , bendable , lousy edge holding but it was an official WW II relic . The typical foot soldier carry type and nothing more than a conversation piece and good learning tool but no value .
