So when you say that you originally meant to just say you liked the swords, you're frankly lying. You've been caught out, and are trying to minimise the damage.
I didn't realize that I didn't know as much about swords as some of the people on this board and so yes, I am trying to minimize the damage.
Did what for "about a year"? That's the damn question! Give the website, name the system, something that tells me what you actually did.
This is the website NJ Aikikai and Budokan
"I think it was good" is different to "these items are good" (quality). Note which one you used.
Than I should've said it like that.
Really? Do you know the difference? Do you know why you wouldn't buy one? Is it based on anything you actually know, or is it based on some false assumption like most of the rest of your posts?
Does it matter?
