    Period swords and modern swords

    I understand what you guys are saying about the skill of the user and everything but that was never my question. I don't how the thread turned in that direction other than some of you wanting to talk down to me.

    Cold Steel Tai Pan - should I oil it?

    Considering it's stainless and the outside layers of the san mai being especially rust resistant I doubt you would have to worry too much.I would probably give it a light coat of oil myself just in case. Leather can store moisture, be aware of that. I always wanted a tai pan or a black bear...

    in terms of strength, who wins. choice A, or B?

    Anybody saying that ZT has stronger folders should just bow out of the thread right now. I own a 0400 and the only folder I would be comfortable putting it against in terms of strength is my Crkt Hissatsu folder..it doesn't hold a candle to my espadas or spartan or even my Benchmade Bedlam.Some...

    whats the big deal?

    The answers to your questions are not simple ones. A lot of members of this community are what you would call " steel snobs" and many are snobs in general. A lot of hypocritical information in this thread.. so apparently people have a problem buying an aus8 knife for 50$ when there are s30v...

    Period swords and modern swords

    I wonder if all of the same applies to say.. a period bowie knife? Perhaps we aren't talking about something with as much history and prevalence with that though.

    The shobu zukiri style katana was apparently made the way it was to get through Mongol armor better, it was modeled after the naginata.

    Period swords and modern swords

    I understand but How much more time and how much more attention needs to be applied to something with so much better materials? I just mean look at some of the katanas made now days made out of 9260 spring steel like the Cheness Tenchi or even the lesser quality cold steel swords.Would a samurai...

    Favorite Quotes from non-knife people.

    I remember someone saying that this cheap "440" survival blade complete with hollow handle,matches,fishling line and all would be able to be used against a bear. Keep in mind this knife had almost no edge to speak of and was overly thick and the blunt tip would have trouble penetrating a person...

    Cold Steel fanboys...What can I say?

    I'm not sure why the advertising would bother someone, A lot of knife companies are making tactical knives Cold Steel just shows them in action.Spyderco has tactical knives too, only they don't show them being tested in anyway so you're gambling with it's ability in such a situation.I'm not...
