Because we know what the Paul Chen swords look like. That's not one of them.

After that video started floating around on the net I emailed the shopping channel that came from and asked them about it. They said he was not hurt, it didnt even pierce his shirt. He was pretty much just acting it up for the camera. But what freakin moron would smack the spine of a sword on the table anyways?!

The swords are stainless, but I would hardly even call them wallhangers since they are so cheap it's hard to believe anyone would even hang them on the wall. They have a thin cord wrapped handle around wood. very ugly looking.

I can't believe I just saw that. Paul Chen? I'm not that familiar with what their swords look like but I know that they DON'T look like that. What's with the little tassles? The blade's almost shapeless with no bohi or defined kissaki. $44 seems like a rip-off since someone I know managed to get a VERY genuine-looking iato for $60, you could swear it was a live Paul Chen.

But anyway, what exactly does banging the edge against a table prove? Nothing but that you are a complete moron.

i really doubt that anyone with any knowledge of Katana's would buy a wallhanger, i got given a set of 3 japanese swords, and i stuck them away out of site, for a start you can actually see where the metal has been shaped to give it the curve, secondly its made of spring steel, in case anyone doesnt know what spring steel is, its the steel from car or Tank springs, either that or they are made from stainless steel, good for kitchen knives, bad for katana's, i personally think that the wallhangers are ugly, all those tassles and crap they put on them, a friend of mine in the UK bought a genuine Katana from Japan, and its the plainest thing you've ever seen, cost him a small fortune, but inspite of being plain to look at, you draw the sword and its breathtaking, anyway my advise DON'T buy wallhangers

HAHA! I've been looking for that video for ages. Thank you so much for putting that up. That's basically been a running joke between me and some friends for a while now as we know a guy who picked one of those up for the sake of being able to say "I'm cool I have a sword". So great...

of course theyd say he wasnt hurt. but look at teh video. he says its razor sharp, and when he is hit, he folds like a futon. You dont act that well on the shoping channel. They had to replace the guy. And if thats a paul chen sword, then masahiro makes the best.

I too have heard that he was not hurt, but then he does act like this. I doubt that he was acting. I am willing to bet he only thought he was hurt. He was not expecting it to break, and when it did, and hit him unexpectedly his first thoughts where “Oh god, I’ve just stabbed my self”. Mix a little panic with embarrassment, and you can act like you’ve stabbed your self, even if you haven’t

Classic. Thats why I only own two swords can't afford good ones often and I will NEVER buy a wall hanger unless I need scrap.

Anyone who even considers buying a katana off of QVC should be smacked.


I found a hilarious remix of the sword break mishap.
