Hello all, once again.

I've been going through the above threads (or below threads, now, I guess) with interest, and smile at how many people are eager to get a real sword. I can't lie, I'm one of them. Spent hundreds on crappy 440 stainless steel things through the years, and finally splashed out on a Paul Chen earlier this week.

However, in one of the posts, I read that Paul Chen's swords are below par.. this disappointed me somewhat, to think that I'm still getting conned after feeling such confidence of otherwise, and spending so much on one.

So, here's the question - I live in the UK. I've seen links to sword shops, but I think they're all American. I'm not a rich man, I don't want to spend thousands on a sword, let alone hundreds on postage too [IMG]http://www.fightingarts.com/forums/ubb/tongue.gif[/IMG] So please, if anybody in the UK knows of a site where I can get myself a proper sword, preferably for under a grand, please let me know, and I'll be grateful.

It's mostly for display than to practice with, but I want to own a realsword because I feel like just another wannabe with 440 Stainless printed on all my swords [IMG]http://www.fightingarts.com/forums/ubb/tongue.gif[/IMG]
