Spent a few hours streamlining the edges so that they can be used in "lazy cuts" / "minimal cuts".

How about empty bottles and cracker boxes? Or perhaps a cylinder of newsprint?

I'm never interested in empty bottles or very hollow targets. Big Grin But perhaps the owner of the sword (not me) can give it a try. Dun think it will cut them though. hahaha. It's still realistic battlefield sharpness, not trick cutter.

True. Thanks a lot for your kind words. Spent several hours with DMT extra extra coarse stones on those 4 meaty edge planes. Very tiring.

There are a coupe of videos out there of the man cutting..

A friend and I switched to empties after some very heavy cardboard tubes, as well because of the wet factor. Clean cutting water bottles is kind of like the perfect dives, leaving little splash.

Indeed, the less splash the better the cut. Happy
