Shadiyah was showing her sword off a while ago....(PIC HEAVY)

Here's my sword! I know I'm not as cute as Shadiyah, but this is a 16000 layer Toledo blade Katana. That's right.....a combat rated sword!

I don't want that edge near the beltline, it could cause a wardrobe accident! That edge is SHARP!

Mr. Stormcrowe used to be one of Saddam's doppelgänger's way back in the day.. How else did you think he could afford that gold plated katana?

You aren't the first person to notice the resemblance. Matter of fact, apparently I look close enough to be mistaken for a member of the family. My closest resemblance though is to Uday!

It actually has some tungsten in it. Part of the gold coloration is the tungsten and part is the lighting.

You should have gotten a shorter one, so you could fabricate up a top tube or downtube mount for it. Show them wolves who's boss!

Nice steel, though, Tom.

Tom Stormcrowe never changes facial expressions.

If I had the time, I'd make a gif.

That is a hell of a nice blade Tom. Not a huge fan of the sculpted bone, but thats all personal taste.

I want a real sword. I have been using my bokken and kendo practice swords for over 6 years, but have never owned a real sword. Damned things are expensive.
