Yeah. It was cool and everything....

......then--at the time--my idiot boyfriend decided to buy one despite being 10k in debt over a spontaneous flat-screen TV purchase and late on the rent while being unemployed and proceeded to use it to skewer the walls of our apartment.

I guess it isn't like it mattered because him and his idiot friends took my bow and arrows and riddled the place with holes a couple months before.

And everyone always says I'm the bitch who ruined relationships. : /

Yup. It was a while ago when they were more expensive....it was a HUGE one that barely fit inside. The deal was that we'd try it out and return it to decide if we'd really want one.....



.......well it didn't end up that well. : / I think he's still paying it off....and I feel bad but I tried to help. Oh well. I think he was in the mentality that it was all going down the toilet so why not dump some more in and flush repeatedly?

I wore chain mail and held a spear in school as some Saxon History thing... But the closest in recent years is an umbrella I have that have that has a grip that's the same as a Katana!

On the subject of chain mail: it isn't as heavy as you think, in fact the modern Ordinary Soldier carries about 90 pounds, Full European Plate weighed 40-50 pounds and samurai armour was 50-55 pounds...

I've held a spatha and gladius, and I can say I dislike one-handed grips. The pommel digs into my hand when I swing with dexterity over strength.
I also own two training swords: a hand-and-a-half longsword and katana. The katana is shorter and almost half as heavy, but I can put almost twice the force behind it than with the longsword. There's a reason the katana's design was never altered. I teach myself how to fight, having read about basic grips and stances.
