And I want to learn their "extremely secretive form of physics". Is that what teaches you to fly around like in those Hong Kong movies?

Oh dear lord, when will it end? I "read" and scrolled all the way down and am typing blindly because my eyes just leaked from my skull :(

I think the hyperbole is the worst:

The 70cm gently curved live 440 stainless steel blade has a unique full length HI-line groove running down both sides of the blade- also prominently featured is the Hamon hardened edge in classic Choji pattern. In all this remarkable sword is a culmination of absolute devotion to purist needs within the Martial Arts fraternity

fwuh?

although i'll admit the samurai 3000 line of swords, with their "precisley machine metal parts" made me chuckle.

for my "japanese samurai ninja katana sword" fix i visit ebay.
gems like this: you are looking at an ancient Japanese Samurai Sword. The sword body made of steel, the handle made of wood with sharkskin and thread wrapped, and the scabbard made of wood wrapped with sharkskin. It was used by ancient Japanese samurai. It represent bushido spirit. Knife-edge is sharp and the sword handle can be disconnected. it was collected by me . we know the Japanese warrior is very famous all round the world . so do the Japonic sword . it can bring power and lucky for you . so the people all round the world like it very much . if you won it and it will bring power for you . so wonderful item .Please take a close look at my pictures.If you like, please don't miss it, I wait for you !!!

In regard to the sword on e-bay, what really makes it funny, is that he trumps it up so much, and then you see just how much the sword is... A whole whopping $48.00! Sharkskin indeed... hehehe! I can't believe people actually buy these things and think they can actually use them... Sheesh, $48.00 to me, screams, "I'm unsafe!!!"

After the Japanese occupation ended, it was common to see Manchurian / Chinese made keepsakes in the form of Nihon To etc.

They still make em, and sometimes you can even get lucky and find an original "made at the end of occupation."

They are good for souvenirs or gifts, but are such a far cry from the actual, that it's not even worth getting into detail.

The price considering the ridiculous description makes you spit your beer all over monitor, but check out the shipping.

IMO they are a lot cooler than your average store bought piece of crap, but I cant for the life of me, figure why ebay does not come down on them for the blatant lies.

To even the layman, the price tells you everything, but there is a well meaning sucker born every minute.

The same folks sell copious ammnts. of Kung Fu type "ancient" weaponery as well.

"extremely secretive form of physics"

HA! That's going into my vocabulary alongside the phrases "ninjas are mammals", "flipping out" and "swampest places."
