Can any of you lads help me out here?
I'm looking to buy a sword to use for decoration. Specifically, this one: http://www.amazon.com/Dream2reality-Cosplay-Shirayuki-Tempered-Handmade/dp/B00C7A9LLA

My issue is, I don't know anything about swords, and there are multiple options that have things to do with terminology that I don't understand which affect the price. Any advice?

If it's just for decoration then get the cheapest one.
>>
>>28433762
Okay, but do you think it will look the part? While it won't be used for any kind of sparring or anything, I don't want it to be anything too poor looking.
>>
>>28433837
the money you save on sword can be spent on new fedora
>>
>>28433837

Does it look neat to you?

Because that's all that really matters. If some unsufferable cunt walks in and goes "hurr durr that's an unauthentic sword blah blah" you just tell him it's a fucking wall hanger.
>>
>>28433837
They all look the same. The options are just for different materials.
>>
>>28433850
No need senpai, I have my sombrero. (Seriously though, some people like paintings, others like ornaments. I like the look of swords.)

>>28433853
I guess you're right. I probably wouldn't manage to spot the difference anyway. Thanks.
>>
you must search for the foldest one
>>
I don't get the appeal of a sword that's isn't an actual weapon, even if its just for decoration. But to each his/her own.

Kult of Athena' has swords, some cheep, some not.

Just buy one of those 1045 katanas from musashi. They're as cheap as most wallhangers and aren't actually wallhangers
>>
>>28433607

I dunno man. Buying a fake sword for decoration is kind of like buying an airsoft bolt gun to hang over your mantle.
>>
>>28434081
Word, I got one of their "Practical Cutters" back in '98 and it is still in near perfect condition.

>>28433607
Something that is not "full tang" should not even exist...
When it comes to the blade material, all non folded types will pretty much look pretty much the same. When folded the pattern will be more or less visible depending on the used types of steel.

The main choice that also makes a difference in performance as a weapon is between a fake and real "hamon", the area of hardened steel at the edge (the back of a Japanese style sword is not hardened.)

..for actual use I personally prefer a sword completely without one because it's more reliant and not "fake".. and for decoration a real hamon. ...

Clicking all the imaged should give you all information you need, it's the website of a Chinese forge doing custom work.

>..because it's more resilient ..

The main question is, what's your budget?
>>
>for decoration

WRONG

SWORDS ARE DANGEROUS

THEY'LL FUCKING CUT YOU WIDE OPEN
>>
>>28437567
main problem of the ones only made for decoration is that they might end up being dangerous unintentionally...
