Yes I know what Morse code is Laf, but telegraphs seem like an ideal breeding ground for abbreviations such as these.

ok, so to keep it on topic [sort of], there was a guy who cut up 2 women badly with a sword a year or so back, then murdered a guy by shooting him in the back 25 times. He is up in front of the court at present for sentancing. Nice sort of chap... NOT!

The press are all calling it a samurai sword [ie a katana] but I saw some pix of it and it was a straight bladed sword. I only got a glimpse but I think it had a tassle hanging off the handle too.

Would I be right in saying it was a straight bladed ninjitsu sword or some form of chinese or kungfu sword?? If so what would it be likely to be?

The blade appeared quite thin in comparison to the tsuka. Didn't see the saya.

Any ideas??? [IMG]http://www.fightingarts.com/forums/ubb/smile.gif[/IMG]

Since the ninja-to isn't exactly a traditional sword i guess it could have a tassel if he wanted it to. It would also depend on what company made it. With so many variations and interpretations of different swords being made it's hard to tell with out seeing it. I've seen "katana" with tassels. They were running about $30 a set of three, go figure.

Maybe if you could find a picture of something similar.

It sounds like a Chinese Jian, Reki, but I'm having trouble finding an article that can confirm that theory. Would you mind giving us a link?

Is this the sort of sword there?

I was thinking of something along these lines.

But you know the media, every thing is a samurai sword. It could very well have been any kind of sword.

Well... I know my katanas aren't exactly thin. They aren't tasseled either. It's not that hard to but, why would he waste the time buying a fancy katana anyways. You can get a mock-up sting(lord of the rings) for much less $

Thanks guys! [IMG]http://www.fightingarts.com/forums/ubb/smile.gif[/IMG]

I only got a very brief glimpse of the pic of the sword on the TV news, so all I really took in was the fact that it was a straight bladed sword and had a red tassle on the end - looks similar to both of these pix you've kindly found for me.

Here's the news item if you are interested.

Sounds like a cheap knockoff. The article states that the sword broke.
