I love the arguments that come up on Pics of Disaster threads.

The street argument is retarded. BJJ is so much overkill for the street that its ridiculous. Unless you're the idiot that picks a fight with the high school wrestling team, barring knife or gun play, the opponent shouldn't make it past double leg + ground and pound - Osiris

No. I've had this on on order for oh... 'bout two years or so now. It's a basic shinogi-zukuri sword, but it happens to parallel my Token Mino Higo-goshirae iaito exactly.
It's a Dguertin model based off a sword designed by Kaneuji (14th century, I think). 27.5 shaku, 11.5 inch tsuka. It's ass-ugly right now though. Black tsuba, black tsuka ito. I'm saving up for a koshirae change like I did on my last one, which is taking a bit since I can't work.
I have an old Gen 1 or Gen 2 Bugei Bamboo in great condition. I'd love to remount it in a toppei theme but that's more money than I have, and it has no hi so it doesn't fit my iaito quite as nicely.
You might be able to see some of her sister blades at http://www.dguertin.com. You might not. Darryl's been having some problems with his forge, but at last (long last), I've got my sword in. Once I remount it (early next year sometime) I'll post pictures.
I've been thinking of getting a training group together around here, because there's really nothing else. There's an MMA gym about 40-50 minutes away, and the DFW Kendo Kyokai is only about 1.5 hours away. It just depends on if I ever get my courseload under control.--
