    It's even better that he made no attempt to hide his identity and should have known there was NO MONEY as he WORKED THERE!

    So the maker of the belt sword actually saw my posts here and emailed me to let me know that I had installed the clips wrong. They're not actually meant to have the belt threaded through them. So I redid it the proper way and now the swords are much smoother on the draw. Even the longest one doesn't bind up in the slightest.

    Having them installed properly also makes the whole thing more covert as the clips can't be seen on both sides of the belt.

    sword belt is pretty cool. Thanks for the video efforts.

    I think .45-70's are older than 22's.

    Thanks for the review! Must have one. Buying one tomorrow ...

    Edit: Got my belt swords today. Everything looks and feels high quality. Only had a chance to practice with the short one. Like Anna's video, draw is lighting fast. I plan on sharpening one of them up and trying some tameshigiri.

    Excellent... I just found my girlfriend's Christmas present.

    Edit: Forget Christmas... just ordered a set. Got a friendly call, too.

    If only they made them double-edged...

    I'd worry about the springiness, though. And the lack of crossguard.

    But it's cooler than pulling out a knife!

    I don't know... If I had to whip out a flabby, sharpened piece of metal that close to my balls I would feel more confortable knowing that the side closer to them is blunt...

    Actually, IIRC, it's the sharp edge that's close to your balls, judging from how they're drown (edge down, not edge up like katanas)

    And to add something and not spam...

    So how do you beltsworders like your weapons so far? Any good? Too flabby?
