there's another vid floating around somewhere from QVC where their super sturdy multi-position step ladder collapsed under the guy. That one's funny too.

I was talking for a guy who used to direct for those shows - seems the salesmen are all really bored so they make crap up all the time just to see how bizarre they can get in the product descriptions. Doesn't really matter because the kind of person who buys stuff off of QVC won't generally know quality from lousy anyway

I'd guess he probably was hamming it up because he'd just claimed the sword was "razor sharp." On the other hand, the point got him, so it probably didn't feel too good.

I know of a guy who bought a wall hanger, then smacked it against a railroad tie (the wood blocks) and it snapped. He then went back to complain that it broke. What do you expect from a wall hanger.

Paul Chen makes decent stuff. Though, if you're going to do alot of tameshigiri or suburi with it, you may need to have the tsuka re wrapped and/or lenghthened. The cheaper ones for sure and maybe all don't have a full same wrap; it's wood with 2 cut pieces of ray skin on either side. So, it will slip eventually.

Just to put some rumours to rest. I used to work with him at the Shop at Home television channel, where I started as a production assistant and eventually produced two shows. SATH is where he relocated after being "let go". He now shows electronics. He was not seriously hurt. He did have a small cut and even has a half inch scar to prove it. Mostly he was incredibly embarassed and had quite a sizable bruise. Also, rest assured he gets more crap about this incident than you can imagine.

-insert voracious laughter here- oh my god, I knew that stainless steel and most cheap swords had a tendency to break but, seriously, on a market channel? XD.
now if you were an expert, you could hit it off a wall behind you, duck. And take the weapon of those you just killed.
