    ... Of course it's pure bullshit. Here one of the best links I found concerning sharpness of original blades: Edge Bevels and blade geometry of original swords.
    But unlike other myths I know where it comes from. Decades of mass produced wallhangers, stage combat safe props and rusted antiques have led to the notion anything "european" has to be blunt. Epees and smallswords were pure thrusters, the only swordsmanship remained in 20th century was foil fencing. That's it. Only since 2000er affordable authentic sharp european blades are available (Albions, ATrims), which are actually made for real use and not only for "looking good". You can not blame people for this, not really.
    You already made this statement and no one was disagreeing with you on that point.

    But do you train with "aliveness" or you simply cut defenseless things?

    Lol I was going to ask that very question. Speaking of questions, he completely avoided my previous question on wether it was legal for him to own a sword in Germany.

    You exaggerate way to much drama queen. ****!
    Otherways prove me the bold phrase to be true in a false-or-true kind of way. ****!

    Calm down, please. Take a deep breath or two, imagine what you would like to say acutally BEFORE you say it, rethink it, repeat, repeat again, please. ****!

    I don't think he meant that, it was an example of stupid things people believe.

    i don't know much about sword arts, but i do know that having dyslexia makes the word "denigration" translate to something COMPLETELY different.

    Of course all the cutting targets are stationary, it's all about training and not run & cut cosplay.
    Yes, owning a sword is completely legal in Germany, if you're 18 years old. What you can't: run with it in public (no matter if it's sharpened or not) or use it for self-defence. You can carry them everywhere, if properly encased.

    What I write has been considered dozens of times, this is a rant mate, an emotional outbreak on frauds and bullshitters. Wankhead!
