Student cutting with a Cold Steel bastard sword that I sharpened. Cold steel swords no longer come sharp enough. Wink

I sharpened the cold steel bastard sword. It was easier to cut with, given that it can be used 2 handed. However, the hanwei dao is not bad itself. Cutting with its factory edge is feasible.

Single handed Dao doesn't compare to a bastard sword, so it's hard to say. Wink
