    Just one thing. ^_^ Act like the blade will slice you if you hold it wrong. I catch myself gripping the blade when I am practicing, but you want to make people think that its a real weapon.

    Other that that, great job. ^_^

    I don't have to act -- mine WILL slice you if you hold it wrong. I have the scratches to prove it - lol.

    I just picked up my first practice sword!

    Dancing 15 years and I'm finally getting around to adding sword to my skills. LOL This thread is an interesting read.

    Mine konks me in the brain. I think it's mocking my lack of sword skills.

    Kinda reminds me of the early episodes of Bleach, when Ichigo first got his zanpakto.

    Geez, my veil hates me, now my sword hates me!

    You're braver than I. To get my skills going I have a blunt, but well weighted and balanced practice sword.

    I've been walking around the apartment with my sword balanced on my head to try and get used to it, but waling around this apartment is like navigating a gauntlet...only it's the person "running the gauntlet" that can do the damage! In the living room/dining room area, we have a double-tiered glasstop coffee table, and a leather couch and love seat that belong to my daughter, to say nothing of the rest of the furniture! Plus, this crazy apartment has so many turns and corners; it's an absolute nightmare! I think I'm now more scared of slicing open my daughter's furniture than I am of slicing myself open.

    Maybe a road of obstacles with a dangerous weapon is a good thing?

    ONE thing is for certain: I have a healthy respect for my sword.

    I use to practice in the garden, more room and less fragile things around, just the grass (and my toes) Luckely my neighbours are already used to it by now!
