Pictures of any sword reviewed are avaible on request and I can put interested parties in touch with the place of purchase.
I don't expect anything from this- I will not be making anything on any purchases , and I put the informaton forth as a free service, as I am not allowed to use the forum as a "Sales Media".
Oriental blades are also available on the same "nothing to me" basis. I will not review any eastern blades. But I will comment on the Chen Pao forge blades if requested.
I hope the blade reviews are helpful.
I do practice one of the T'ai Chi sword forms so i have a bare minimum of experienrce in this area.
