I think this says it all for me:

Quote:


There is video on the site showing how I hit tires.
[...]
I wanted to get as many cuts in as I could in 15 seconds.
[...]
I went to the site you posted. I only see a guy cutting some straw mats. I must not be looking in the right place.





We aren't talking about Japanese swords and Japanese Sword Arts or anything relevant to it. Just hitting stuff with a sword in ways not consistent with what Japanese Sword Arts do.

It's been discussed elsewhere, but I think it's worth noting again. Hitting tires? As many cuts as possible in 15 seconds? Nothing to do with JSA, and thus not applicable to what we do, regardless of results.

Quote:


I don't see why anyone would be oppose to testing. We should have a more open mind. Why not find out what the limits of this Katana is? It is my money. I don't mind breaking it just to find out how far it will go. I fail to see why people would not be curious. Don't you stop to look at a two cars in an accident and examin the damage?




There's something you don't seem to understand. We examine the damage caused by car accidents, because they are a result of how we use cars.

You're hitting tires and doing other things that have no connection with what we do in JSA. Hence, your results are meaningless.

I'm sure my sucky wooden pencil would break easily if I were to wedge it somewhere and bend it forcefully. Of course, that means absolutely nothing, because I write with it, I don't wedge it everywhere and bend it to see what happens. It's the same with your "tests". We don't hit tires, we don't hit anything with a consistency anywhere near that of tires, so the test is meaningless.

I am rather confident this won't faze you, but at least perhaps other readers will understand why these tests mean nothing as far as JSA is concerned.

His form looks horrible for any JSA. It took me a long time
just to get the propper form on my 1st kata never mind the
proper way to cut! That took more time... My opinion is just
don't advertise testing for 440J ss swords. Please don't!!
