Testing out my edge sharpening angle on a composite target to see how it handles realistic situation.

Since I switched from cutting newspapers rolls alone to various hard material cored newspapers rolls, I've adjusted my edge angle to a more robust one to withstand the impact, literally 60 inclusive degree at the apex followed with 20 inclusive degree convex bevel.

The target is composed of non-woven fabric as clothing, multiple layers plastic bags as skin, soaked newspapers roll as muscle and PPR piping as cored.

The sword used is the Longship Armoury 1095 DS Dadao at 62 HRC. The edge suffered 0 damage after the test.

In order to test a lighter, more versatile sword on an even heavier target to see how it would perform, I tried to use Longship Armoury 3V Tengu vs composite target at shin difficulty. Multiple layers of non-woven fabric as clothes, multiple layers of plastic bags as skin, thick newspapers roll as muscle and PPR pipe as bone.
