Here is a video of a sword test, I don't know if its a good test.
I know you won't get this, but I'm going to say it (again) anyway.
That's not a test of the sword. It's a test of the person, if anything.
So another words somebody whose really good with swords can get the same result using a junk sword.
What would a test look like? Would he be doing several different things different things (reason why asking, just curious...)
