Maybe you aren't aware that some of the blue and purple states have restrictions on the length of blades that may be carried, concealed or not. I'm not about to put myself in a position to be charged. The ADAs would just love that.

Though all violent crime is, of course, heinous, it seems like if we were to choose one form of it to endorse, it should be sword-bsed violent crime.
Really, we should start setting minimums on the length of blades one can carry.

You can't practice Judo just to win a Judo Match! You practice so that no matter what happens, you can win using Judo!The key to fighting two men at once is to be much tougher than both of them.

So that's how Duncan McLeod did it.
Next time someone comes for my head, I'll be ready!

While the sword belt would be illegal in some states, carrying a big bowie knife that isn't concealed is legal. You can also have a machete in your vehicle.
I actually carry a tanto-style knife when I'm riding my motorcycle, because I'm corny.

So the maker actually called me today to thank me for my order and said he's going to send me an extra sword with it because I got the 5 sword package. So I'll have 6 of them of various lengths. I figure that by varying which one you carry you can probably minimize bend from extended usage, if it even presents itself as a problem which it may or may not depending on the steel thickness and style of heat treatment.
Don't know when I'll get them exactly but I'll post my thoughts here.

i guess just dont wear it for long periods of time and occasionally flip it over so it bends the other way too. hopefully that's a non-issue due to some kind of new space-age *eyeroll* material.:new_all_c

Anna - if you do grind to sharpen, you should be very careful to not overheat and ruin the temper of the 1075 material. Any color change beyond a yellow is getting too hot and is easily done, given the thin blade material.
