Re: A warning! Not the chen swords!

what i'm trying to say is that in comparison to Last legend Katanas they just don't look very substantial. I didn't litteraly mean rat tail, just sort of flimsy in comparison to the LL stuff. I bought a PPK and cut with it and it felt ok, just not as good as that LL that my friend has. In addition to the flimsier looking tangs, PPK swords are getting thinner. The first ones were thick blades. I think Walter WOng may have said this before, but the question is not will these swords break on a bad cut, but when. These PPK swords just don't forgive bad cuts. BTW which furniture do you find more appealing? Paul Chen on the PPK, or LL?
