There was a show on Discovery a few mths ago, called Fight Science, where they tried to scientifically work out the most effective weapon/martial arts technique, and they measured force put on crash test dummies, bodies moulded out of ballistic gel, etc. IIRC Samurai Sword came out on top as most deadly, mainly cos it was so sharp.

Would be a different outcome if it was a Hattori Hanzo bullet.

BTW here's the doco I was talking about:

1) Enclosed Area - Gun
2) Open - Gun
3) Anytime/Anywhere - Gun

You sure its hand made from Japan ??
If it is your a verrry lucky person !! They were classed as a National Heritage Item in Japan awhile ago and you cant bring the real JDM Katanas out of the country anymore.

Instead two of the major companies that made swords in Japan relocated to China, but it still ran by Japanese people.

Haha hook me up with one if you can get them :P

I have one but its not a real JDM one
