First a little side note. I’m not posting this to bash on the other person (although my water was boiling a bit when he started to use |@# words ..), but rather to show how myths and ‘flat’ knowledge about the Japanese swords are still a live and kicking today.
The whole e-mail conversation started with the question if i could ship the Tsunami katana to his country… just you have the context.. and for both of us, English isn’t our native language
This is what followed :
Thanks for your interest. We could defenitely ship to XXX but i need to check for the shippingcosts. Could you provide me with the city & postalcode where it has to be shipped ? At the moment, the tsunami is out of stock, need to look when it comes back.
If anything else, just let me know !
You are welcome Dave, you got plenty of really good samurai sword and after that i read your useful book i decided to choose the best samurai sword that i can cut heavy things with, is Tsunami that has no ” Hi ” so i guess i’ll be always waiting for it to comes back to buy it, but if there is any strong samurai sword than Tsunami that has no ” Hi ” to cut heavy thing i like to know, cause in generale i wanna take the best sword you have in cutting heavy heavy things.
Even the strongest sword can not cut rocks We do have a few alternatives. This one here is a very good one (and cheaper) :
I also have another one here that is not on the site yet but it has a bit of a long blade..
Haha, i know that i can’t cut rocks, but i like cut some ice man and ice is strong to cut, if you wanna know my purpose to why even i wanna buy a katana because i’m a martial and i want to have a katana for protection that’s why i always ask for the strongest sword to cut heavy things because i don’t want to fail me in a battle someday !
No problem, the tsunami is coming back in stock end of next week, beginning the week after that. Do i keep it aside for you since that’s the only one coming in..
Yes sure, but i really need to know is it the best sword you have for protection body and fighting ?
In theory it’s one of the strongest swords we do carry but you can never look into the steel of the blade
Just to let you know that we have the tsunami available again
even real samurai can’t break rocks , right ? so go fuck yourself with your bla bla , next time talk well with your clients , you don’t sell your items for free IDIOT !
Go ahead and try to cut some iceblocks with a ‘super duper non breakable’ katana … Let me know when you found some, defenitely need to buy some
PS: love you too my friend…
well , katana is a sword of a samurai and a samurai is a worrior , so if a REAL katana could not break some iceblocks , well it’s not a real one , cause katana sword is so famous with the power of cuting things like humain bodies :p
And this is the part where i have to let this conversation go…some people just don’t want to learn/understand things. These kind of similar conversations does happen from time to time so it just reflect the myths and ‘mis education’ people have. And the influence of movies
As far as ‘ a real katana is super duper strong’, just watch this video too see how easy you can break a ‘real’ one with a bad technique
So who has a similar situation he/she want to talk about…
