My friend Clyde Hollis of www.kingdomofarms.com sent me some swords and asked me to test them for him and give a review so this is the first one. The balance point is about 6 inches below the hilt so that is good by me. The fit and finish is very good with nice quality leather on the grip. The grind on the blade is nicely done on a fully hand forged blade. I am including a short vid of some cutting. I went at a dead tree at the back of my farm. So it is a little rotten first off but is still at least twice as dense as a Tanami Mat, which is what I like to use for cutting but I am having trouble finding from my usual sources. I am also including some photos of the sword after the fact. All I have done is wipe the blade with a oily rag. I found that it took no damage from the cutting at all. So all and all I give this sword a good review and fell that if you like it you should fell good about buying it.
Just a quick FYI. And I dislike doing it, but the legal wording I have to add.
This video was to show the capability of our product. We do not condone this type of abuse to a perfectly good sword. And we (Kingdom of Arms) do not want anyone chopping trees. If you have not had training in the use and cutting of a sword by a certified trainer, we ask that refrain from doing so. If you have been trained, we ask the use of Tatami Mats or water plastic bottles filled with water.
ichimonji: thanks for your patience

randomnobody: Never see the Shoutbox on mobile, but the talk about post count got me curious. Now I'm wondering if my 16,298 includes the old account's 6,832 or not...

Drunk Merchant: Nerves on my reattached finger recovered great after I started practicing with my 1919 Nagant M1895. If you got a gimpy finger: exercise it and it’ll be back to normal in no time.
