alientude: Ugh...my Huawei katana was just delivered to somewhere in Iowa, instead of California. Something tells me this is going to be a pain to get fixed. Mar 4, 2021 19:32:53 GMT
unom: yes. just found it, hence me deleting the previous comment, thank you sir ! Mar 4, 2021 15:31:55 GMT
Ouroboros: Check out the classified section Mar 4, 2021 15:30:27 GMT
bruntson: How True RS. On the first production sword ($300) I recieved, I couldn't believe that the manufacturer wasn't proud enough of their product to put their name on the box, let alone include care/cleaning instructions or a warrenty. Mar 3, 2021 21:07:31 GMT
RufusScorpius: I've bought a few things from KOA :) I can only say good things about them. I've never had a bum transaction so far. In the sword hobby the reputation of a vendor is more important than the maker of the sword itself. Mar 3, 2021 14:07:47 GMT
bruntson: That makes a lot of sense RS. All but one of my production swords came from KOA and they are awesome to work with. Mar 3, 2021 0:47:39 GMT
zhangziyi777: awaiting hopefully 9th hanwei hunter L6..cant wait Mar 3, 2021 0:47:03 GMT
RufusScorpius: Yes, KOA monitors this forum. They are a sponsor, and I know that at least one of their people is a member and occasionally posts something. And most of us are their customers. Mar 2, 2021 12:51:23 GMT
bruntson: I see that KOA has changed their photo of this sword to reflect that it has the faux white rayskin grips. I wonder if they monitor this chat. Mar 2, 2021 4:00:48 GMT
bruntson: It's the same sword I ordered but with faux rayskin grips. No blade bends or twists, solid grip and no issues outside of the differnt grip. It is unsharpened but it's listed as battle ready for you backyard cutters. Feb 28, 2021 23:31:03 GMT
bruntson: It was suppose to have a brown leather grip. I'm was very happy to find that I recieved a pattern 1827 Royal Navy officer sword with the the white rayskin (resin) grip and in perfect condition. What a deal! Feb 28, 2021 23:25:12 GMT
bruntson: I just recieved from KOA, a Universal Sword British RN dress saber. It was one of their munition grade sword for $100. Feb 28, 2021 23:23:49 GMT
AndiTheBarvarian: Hi, NtN! Feb 27, 2021 9:32:44 GMT
nerdthenord: Howdy everyone. Just checking in again, after taking a break from the forum. Feb 27, 2021 2:22:18 GMT
alientude: Nothing like the feeling of seeing "Out for delivery" on your KoA tracking number... Feb 24, 2021 18:34:32 GMT
aldarith: Yikes Feb 23, 2021 4:36:49 GMT
Brother Nathaniel: I think the guy got one of the mystery boxes in, all of the stuff looked like stuff you would get in one lol! Feb 22, 2021 23:32:37 GMT
treeslicer: Yup. There's already been a thread about it here. Feb 22, 2021 23:21:19 GMT
Zwilnik: Eh I checked and the article is from July Feb 22, 2021 23:12:16 GMT
Zwilnik: It was in Detroit, not CA. Feb 22, 2021 23:02:55 GMT
