cold steel grosse messer test cut

We tested the factory edge before sharpening it for an hour. Then we tested it again.

i don't really bash cold steel's products or at least attempt not to sound that way, but its as if they attempt to make a product to resemble something historical, but slightly miss the mark in their design.

i can remember seeing the official cold steel videos of this and a few other of their historical swords and can remember seeing from the lighting reflections in the videos the waves in some of their grinds. they just look like they need a touch of refinement to my eye.

Testing the cold steel grosse messer with the owner after sharpening it. Since I've learned the sword power, our cutting had become relaxed.

Well, we ended up liking the sword so much that we get 3 more of it, clearing the stock of the shop.

Single handed Cold Steel Grosse Messer cut. Since I was operating all by myself, I totally forgotten to lock up the legs of the portable cutting stand, causing it to fall. :P
