    Well they're real flexible, the longer ones especially seem pretty bendy. The shorter ones feel much sturdier.

    They all have a pretty wicked point, like right now they're completely dull but the point is still like a needle. I have some doubts about the longer ones thrusting ability except maybe against like thin clothes or bare skin (aim for the face!) but the shorter ones seem like they could ruin your day through decently thick clothing but they're all obviously more designed towards cutting, they're like machette thin, if not a little thinner.

It might loosen up a bit with time or if I tried different brackets or something.
    are the brackets spaced like they are in the picture? they're pretty close together, maybe for the longer ones you need to sorta space em out differently. take a few out or something so there's less friction.

    Yeah they're spaced like they are in the picture, I might consider redoing them and taking some out, you don't really need very many it seems.

    YouTube - Nothing up my sleeves...PRESTO, A SWORD.



    They don't come sharpened, I think the whole kit was like 210 bucks+ shipping for 5 swords and the belt and stuff.

    Not bad for the second day playing with the things. I fucked it up a couple times because I was trying to be as fast as I could but it gives an idea of the potential.

    That was the 24 incher, when I get some time I'll do a demo of the others which are 27, 29, 31, and 33 inches respectively.

    Thats pretty fucking fast. If someone tried to mug or **** with you I bet you could turn the tables pretty damn fast.


    Don't mind the questions, since you picked one up that made you the subject matter expert :)

    Saftey wise. If someone sharpened the blade what's the odds of them sliding up their other forearm (with a shitty draw) or otherwise cutting themselves.
    It looks like if someone could probably quite easily cut from their elbow to their wrist if they don't keep their opposite arm active and out of the way.

    Looks wise, if you saw someone wearing the belt does it look odd? Would it set off alarm bells from a cop or security guard?

    Comfort wise how does it feel as a belt? If you wore it for a while would it be uncomfortable on your hips or chafe?

    If you wore it for a couple of hours do you think the sword would keep it's bent shape when you pulled it out? Like would it flop over on you or does it seem like the metal would keep it's shape dispite being around your hips for a while?

    Drawing is pretty intuitive, I have a fair amount of bladed weapon experience and this feels pretty similar to drawing a normal weapon I don't think that cutting yourself is extremely likely but people seem to figure out how to injure themselves very creatively, so who knows?

    Practice practice practice.

    I don't think so. It's pretty standard looking, there are little mostly unnoticeable oddities to it (ie the handle of the sword pushes the belt out a little bit, but not much) how noticeable it will be is probably going to depend on how you're wearing the thing which will depend on which sword you have loaded, where you wear your belt, and how you're shaped. I'm not real big in the waist and it kind of sits on my hips instead of cinching completely to me.

    Comfort wise how does it feel as a belt? If you wore it for a while would it be uncomfortable on your hips or chafe?
    I just wore it out and about to buy some furniture, probably had it on for 2 hours. It's pretty out of your way, isn't really uncomfortable at all.

    If you wore it for a couple of hours do you think the sword would keep it's bent shape when you pulled it out? Like would it flop over on you or does it seem like the metal would keep it's shape dispite being around your hips for a while?
    So far so good.
