Where can I purchase a true Katana in Japan? And what would be the price range?

If not possible any places that make great quality katanas from with better steel/carbon or iron?

Except I wasn't asserting anything, I was asking a question. That's what a question mark means you piss gargling turdfucker.

After learning more about it I learned that my question is still good, but I can revise it to satisfy perpetual masturbators like you.

Doesn't the katana keep its edge better than most swords due to the maleability of the cutting edge?

Also why the fuck would it matter if the design of the sword didn't change for 700 years if it was an excellent design?

No one has answered with any actual information.

Why would european weapons be better? Yes, a heavy sword will break a light one. So fucking what? If it was euros vs japs the japs would already know that and use different weapons.

How does the katana compare to light swords of europe? You can't compare it to heavy swords, that's just absolutely retarded.

>Doesn't the katana keep its edge better than most swords due to the maleability of the cutting edge?
No, it loses it faster because of that reason. It was designed for a single strike, it may start sharper but if it's used in a prolonged engagement/repeatedly it rapidly loses its edge and effectiveness.
>why the fuck would it matter if the design of the sword didn't change for 700 years if it was an excellent design?
Why isn't the Colt1911 the main service pistol of today, because it's been surpassed by more modern designs.
>Why would European weapons be better?
See the prior question. The katana is dated back to 1400 (1200 if you're being picky) so you're best comparing it to a shamshir or something from the same era. European weapons have evolved with the battlefield where the katana just can't cut it anymore (literally and figuratively).

As for the resource aspect >>15053 brought up the European battlefield has evolved faster due to an abundance of resources by comparison. There is evidence to suggest that the Far-Eastern battlefield would have evolved in a similar manner to the European one if the two cultures remained isolated from each other but the rate would have been much slower.

Mine is a $30 maserin poker. It gets the job done and I love the ergonomics. 440c steel is perhaps the best edc steel out there with superior performance to aus8 and better rust resistance.

I know it is a devisive issue but I have never been sold on the opinel knives. People love them or hate them. Its just pain carbon steel and the lock mechanism fails after a few months of heavy use. Aside from that it is bulky.

These debates are always covered in AIDs and Cancer.

If you properly maintain your firearm by lubing and cleaning the chances of jamming is almost non-existent. At the end of the day it's all about aesthetics.

Sarah Palin 14/09/05(Fri)13:12 No. 15026

I prefer a pistol. Simply because they're far faster to reload - provided you don't only have one magazine for it. The down side is that you're not reloading a magazine mid-combat. With a revolver, if you simply have a few round rattling around in your pocket, your reload will be faster. But this simply comes down to preparation.

While hardly anyone in this argument has a necessity for combat-load on ammo, it wouldn't hurt to have three or four magazines loaded and on you.

Basically, it comes down to preference, though. I'm far more familiar with pistols than revolvers, therefor prefer them. The advantage that revolvers have is potential accuracy boosts from single-action; however, I have a rifle if I need long-distance precision.

I also like that pistols tend to be lighter than revolvers (please note the word "tend"). While the weight difference isn't anything immediately notable it can be if, for some reason, you're in an extended fight with the weapon readied up constantly.

I'm looking to purchase my first handgun. I was looking at a cannick tp9 (9mm) or an Springfield XD in some sort of caliber, but my coworker told me I should just get a small cheap .380, since presumably I can't shoot for shit anyway.

I know he's probably right, so could you guys recommend a .380 that is both cheap and has some good safeties on it? I'm interested in target shooting and a little home defense.

I would never use a carbine for home defense unless I also felt like shooting my TV, two walls and the neighbor. Any 5.56 or 7.62 would go right through someone.

I recently came into a Mosin-Nagant in decent condition. Whatever the previous owner had used to lubricate the mechanisms with was some dark brown, amber-ish colored gunk that looked like it was really ready to be cleaned off and replaced. It looked like some sort of very poorly refined oil. I've cleaned the entire mechanism and only about half way through began to wonder if there was a particular point in this gunk.

Now that I've cleaned it off and oiled it down, I've come to the opinion that the bolt is a bit harder to operate than it was before I cleaned it. I'm wondering if maybe this thicker grease was partially to help offset the grinding of the bolt caused by a particularly sturdy spring. So what does /w/ use to oil their Mosin-Nagant to keep the bolt loose?

PS, there's an empty slot for what looks like a rod in the wooden body under the barrel. Was this rod used to force out stuck shells, or did it have some other purpose? How retarded would it be to mount a laser sight in there?

Do not use Windex or other household cleaners. Waste of money. All you are doing is trying to wash away the corrosive salts deposited in the barrel. Boiling water alone will accomplish this.

Sarah Palin 14/07/25(Fri)06:47 No. 14993

Yeah, windex is way to dilute to offer more than negligable benefit over hot water

Sarah Palin 14/08/10(Sun)07:27 No. 15014

I've read in some reloading manuals that some corrosive salt deposits can get trapped under copper residue from the rounds, and ammonia, being a copper solvent, can remedy this. Hoppes #9 has ammonia in it, so as long as you use water and maybe a little ammonia you're good.
