    I'm guessing it doesn't really matter much these days, as it all depends on what you need/want the sword for. Iaido, wall hanger, as a collectable, cutting **** in the back yard, or time travelling defence in a back alley circa 1500?

    I have one sword that gets used quite a bit for killing copperhead snakes around the house! :) I consider that home defense rather than cutting **** in the back yard, although I guess it could go either way. :)
