Months ago I and Simon designed a sword to be made by Longship Armoury but I proceeded to get a prototype from Lung Chuan first. The Lung Chuan one arrived today. I spent 1.5 hours to put a DMT 8000 edge on it and then tested it out.

That's very impressive to watch, Lance. I found this video more enjoyable than some of the others you've posted - it's nice to have some more details included on the approach you follow with a test.

Watching this, I'd like to ask you where your various martial sources come from - my primary focus in on Western sources, and to me, I almost see some longsword or montante techniques present (which may just go to show how universal a sword really is). I just figured I'd try and probe you for what you have adapted to your own general practice considering the spread of information you're familiar with.

Hello. Thanks for watching. Big Grin Many friends said this video showing how much work I've done to the sword and the dry handling are much better to watch than just to cut indeed.

I have studied German longsword before in 2006, and since plenty of my friends were involved in Japanese swordsmanship, I'm exposed to those since earlier time as well. Since 2008 I had studied Chinese swordsmanship. So nowadays I develop my own style from these sources.

Pitting Lung Chuan Simon Maru against Longship Armoury Tengu and No Remorse in a speed test in quick combo strikes. Simon Maru was the lightest at 3 lbs and No Remorse was the heaviest at 4 lbs 5oz.
