I have a question. If it's good enough to cut then why isn't good enough to not cut.
It's a cumbersome oaf of a sword and I really don't like the handle design that much. It's like a straight hunk of wood wrapped like a Japanese sword handle. Take a look at the difference in handles on the two below. The PPK has a monster tsuka compared to an actual iaito, and it handles like a three legged pig in too big shoes.

But that's just me

"A pacifist is not really a pacifist if he is unable to make a choice between violence and non-violence. A true pacifist is able to kill or maim in the blink of an eye, but at the moment of impending destruction of the enemy he chooses non-violence."
