    .....or to be exposed as the soft, brittle, glorified aluminum the anonymous internet experts say it is? o_O

    What will it be, folks?

    Is titanium really able to make a functional sword or machete that can do work similar to a good steel version? o_O

    Or has the entire titanium sword presentation been smoke and mirrors the whole time?o_O

    Am I crazy? A blatant liar? A con artist? Simply mistaken and ignorant about large blades, and in for a huge reality check on the KoD course? o_O

    Will the light weight make the blade unable to cut? o_O

    Will the ti alloy blade shatter to pieces on a block of ice? Will it wrap itself into a pretzel around a hanging fish? Will it flop off of a rope like an unsharpened noodle? o_O

    No one knows.

    But they can all find out when the titanium sword episode finally airs! :D

    ....or maybe perhaps you've not been unmistaken this whole time? Too much mercury in the fish?

    I need to know a couple of things before I can offer an edumacated guess:

    Did you bulk up for the episode? Did you spin around your own axis when swinging the light Ti sword? :D

    I believe the real key is tongue in cheek placement;)

    Worst condition of my life, going through the worst shitstorm I've ever been through. I'm sure it will show. Didn't matter, while there it was only about the mission: do my scrawny best to show the possibilities of what a ti sword can do.
