Ok so it took me awhile to find this post.
But I thought it would be of importance to those interested in the current Model of Cold Steel Talwar.
It's actually very nice for the money. VERY nice.
Imo the only thing that would make it better would be a better edge out of the box and a wooden cored scabbard instead of just leather(Keep in mind that historically some talwar scabbards were just leather with no wooden core)with polymer blade "holders" on the interior. Sort of similar to the blade holders/grippers on the interior of of some steel saber scabbards.
The distal taper is incredible/advanced, looks to me to be about 8mm-2mm and it has some great handling.
Feels very secure in the hand with the nice, compact handle locking you in.
Extremely high quality for the price. For around $200 new and even less used? Just pull the trigger.

ouroboros: I say we take off and nuke the whole site from orbit--it's the only way to be sure

RufusScorpius: Satellite GPS plot of Christain's property, enter into the Automatic Geometry Guidance and resurface and re-slope his entire property. Then spray it with that green seed mix from a high pressure hose. Should take 20 minutes for the whole job.

RufusScorpius: Oh man, you let slip my gimmick. And I was going to do it by remote piloting using GPS data mapping

treeslicer: Rufus, why do I get this picture of you, in armor, driving some piece of air-conditioned heavy equipment you borrowed from the local railroad, scraping Christain's lawn down to bare dirt, then scattering gravel ballast all over it?

RufusScorpius: I made you a promise I would cut your grass in armor and I fully intend to keep it. I just can't promise a time. But it's gonna happen.

christain: I think Spring is gonna come early this year, so there'll be plenty of time for mower-jousting.

christain: Come and help me MOW my grass in your Roman gear!-------

RufusScorpius: Canada is on my short list of countries to conquer. I'll bring my hakama and long underwear for sure.

ouroboros: Nice! Ever get up this way bring your hakama

RufusScorpius: Looks like I might be going to Mexico City soon. After that, Denver.

Feb 19, 2020 10:32:42 GMT
ouroboros: What's the industry?
Feb 19, 2020 3:38:44 GMT
RufusScorpius: I've been busy since I got home. if N America wasn't enough for me, we are expanding this year into Latin America. Because I don't have enough on my plate as it is.
