Hello first world! I'm Carlos, from Cordoba, Argentina. I've been practicing iaido for some years, and when the time to look for a sword came, the first place with trustful information I found was this. Maybe the only. I have been reading this forum since. I bought my first real sword, then a blunt one for practice, then another sharp but heavier... so it begun. I am a collector now, like it or not. After acquiring experience in the sword market, knowing what each brand has to offer, pros and cons, now I've become some kind of consultant about katana-related things in my dojo. Some fellows iaidokas had their first good quality sword through me (not literally 😁). And we avoided all the junk that some price-inflating importers try to sell around here. So I thought it was time to join in. I will be posting reviews, customer and importing experiences. And looking for advices, recommendations, and good deals. If someone else is from the south cone of America I'd like to talk about how to import swords. Best regards to all the members of the forum and eternal thanks for all you have shared, and will continue to share with the sword community.
Now follows the conclusion, that whosoever shall think or find himself in his fight too weak for the agent's, or patient agent, and therefore, or by reason of his drunkenness, or unreasonable desperateness shall press within the half sword, or desperately run in of purpose to give hurt, or at least for taking of one hurt, to give another, shall most assuredly be in great danger of death or wounds, and the other shall still be safe and go free. - PARADOXES OF DEFENCE, George Silver, 1599
Ouroboros: Every morning I get to see the sun slowly rise in the east while i get the kids ready for school. To ease the creaks and groans of age, i keep my bokken at the door to practice away my morning blues

carbon: Sharpened one of my C/S H&H swords for the first time using an adjustable fixture I made. Went from a little better than butter knife to an even, polished, paper slicing edge. It's a slow process but it does work.
