Myths and cursing…..

BY LEAVE A COMMENT

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.

katana myths

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 :

Me :

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 !


He :

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.

Me :

Hi,

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..

He :

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 !

Me :

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..

He :

Yes sure, but i really need to know is it the best sword you have for protection body and fighting ?

Me :

In theory it’s one of the strongest swords we do carry but you can never look into the steel of the blade ;)

Me :

Hi,

Just to let you know that we have the tsunami available again 

He :

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 !

Me :

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 :)

Dave
PS: love you too my friend…

He :

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…

    i think its how you use the sword not how good it is or whatnot it goes to all the things we use
