I'm starting to amass a collection of android devices. All in current use, I might add.

Yeah, I'll go check out their site. It's been so long since I last ordered from them. I think the last thing I bought from their site was Brave Maximus when it first came out, but that was so long ago...

I've used BBTS and they're good store. Another one I've heard a lot of good things about is http://www.tfsource.com sometimes you can find better deals.

I do have a small sword collection. My katana blade isn't ancient, but the "Damascus" style steel is freakin' sweet. It even survived Knightt's test (brutal.)

:D

I'm hoping "Knightt's test" isn't something sexual. :o

Jam your blade tip into the ground. Stand beside it so the flat of the blade is facing you. Give it a good, hard kick.

If your blade breaks, it's *SQUEE*.

:D

Yup.

Even if my blade was forged in the Showa era (1910-1935), it is quality steel.

I know little about swords but some Japanese ones are amazing.I heard on tv that during world war 2 one soldier cut a machine gun barrel apart ..that had to be one tough sword.

Respect.
I love japanese swords and I had a decorational daisho set (NOT japanese, though...), but had to part with the wakizashi due to finances. As soon as I was trying to get more (and "rejoin" that pair), it became illegal to sell'em here. And i may be wrong, but I think it now applies to all EU- according to the store owner where I get my archery supplies (and where I used to find a lot of replica swords, of all types- it had to do with some robberies in the UK whose culprits were carrying katana swords. :? I was planning to also get a Lusitanian-style Falcata before they vanished. That bummed me.
I'm afraid to order from abroad and have the police knocking on my door. Half-joking.
