    The entire point of a concealable sword is that you can carry it where you're damn well not supposed to be carrying a fucking sword!!!

    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.

    It's sad but true.
    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.

    If you have to sword someone, just get their fingerprints all over the thing, make up a story about how you wrestled it away from them while defending yourself, and sprinkle some crack on them. Jeez, do they not cover this in your training classes?

    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.

    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.
