    yes, its heavy and sharp, it will cut through damn near everything. the problem here though, is that people dont buy swords for their cutting power or potential in battle anymore. well, because nobody battles with swords anymore. to sell a sword just show how cool it looks, which this one doesnt really. ill stick with my blades, i dont think ill be adding this to my collection anytime soon.

    If you want a real sword order a hand forged katana from Japan because they still make em the old skool way down there and they hold a great deal of value as compared to a mass produced junker like these guys are advertising. It takes over 1 month just to create the katanas I am talking about and they are 1 of a kind when finished so if your actually serious about collecting spend the cash and do it right.

    Bet you could pick up one these great swords at any one of those blade shows where they sell all the cheap replica junk for way more than it`s worth...

    Awful presenter. Or maybe not - maybe podgy unfit (did you hear him breathing at the end?) men who aren`t skilled with a sword are their intended market.

    One thing struck me - they did not show the sword after the guy had down pull-ups with it. That makes me wonder if it bent.

    He asks what can beat it. Simple. A gun. The sword has reach and penetration for a sword, but it`s hardly going to compare with that of a gun. If it did, we`d be equipping soldiers with greatswords today.

    when the smaller Asian guy was holding himself up with the sword it bent quite a bit, i wonder what would of happened if the original fat dude did it. that`s most likely why they had that Asian dude fill in for the minor part of the infomercial.

    I don`t think it would even then. Too big, too slow. In the days when people did fight with swords, it was almost always smaller ones. You might be able to cut someone in half with this sword, but not if they`ve already stabbed their sword through your torso that you`ve left open on the backswing of this thing.

    Maybe if you were fighting someone in platemail...

    Yes, but a good blade will bend and return to straight. I wonder if this one did. If it did, why didn`t they show it?

    My image for people who like knives and swords is men wearing shirts with flames on and the dungeons and dragons kid who may or may not also fall into being a goth, not because they actually like the music, but because they like the image of being an outsider, when in reality goths are just an excuse for ugly people to pretend they are being ugly on purpose. Chopping the toes off was cool though, looked like a quality B-movie special effect.

    Why would anyone even need a greatsword in the first place? A shiv is a lot more practical in everyday fights, either that or a gun. You can`t carry it with you wherever you go anyways, so it`s only if someone shows up at your house and gives you ample time to go get it.

    A True ninja wouldn`t need the sword. He`d just cut the the pig`s head like butter with his BARE NINJA HANDS, which are shaper than any blade.

    Because that`s part of being a ninja.

    So... does anyone know why you might ever need this? Even the people into creative anachronism only use blunt swords, as their intention is not actually to kill each other. And in self-defense, a gun is much more practical. Until battling to the death becomes a legally acceptable way to end an argument again, this would really serve no purpose than to look cool on the wall, and a decorative sword would do that job better anyways.

    To make burglars think you`re a nutjob. A gun is more efficient, but a sword is more primally frightening. The excessive size of this sword might help for that.

    I`m scraping the barrel with that reason. It`s pretty much useless, really.

    "this is why you buy a samuri sword. its almost as long, sharper, and faster. ftw lol"

    Actually, the average Katana is only about 28 inches from tip to butt.

    Someone with equal training with this sword would be able to keep a katana user at distance.

    An odachi however, 70 inches. Mainly a horseback sword, but longer than the great sword. Not a stabber, but it`s speed would give an equal a good advantage.

    "A vintage Katana would cut that sword in half"

    Doubt it.
    Anyways, the reason they used swords like this instead of katanas in the west is because of its size and weight. The idea was that you had people walking around in suits made out of a heavy alloy, and swords like this would crush the suit and destroy limbs, making them completely useless in combat, thus immobilizing enemies.

    Always handy in case of oversize hog roasts or long bus queues. Other than that can`t see much use for it other than the amusing accidental auto-decapitation of sad wannabees swinging it around in their bedrooms like that light saber kid.

    This is what the world would belike with out guns"

    Not far off the truth actually - the street gangs in the UK carry knives if they can`t get their hands on a gun. This is much better as you can see them coming and there is less crossfire (although you do still get a few drive-by shootings a year, and we have lost some young innocent kids to crossfire)- only other gang members tend to get stabbed as it`s hard to stab the wrong person by accident so that`s better if hardly ideal. If they were to arm the street-gangs of Europe with hardened steel swords though, I`d probably start wearing armour.

    Well the cool factor of throwing it through the hood of a car was pretty awesome. It even negated the clumsy footwork and the windup of the cutting by the sales staff. You would think guys into making swords would be good at handling them.

    Don`t be fooled by this ad, the sword has a lvl.3 magical damage multiplier against pigs, that`s why it couldn`t cut through the cow head.

    The zweihander (which is what that sword appears to be based on) was never used outside of a ceremonial role because it`s worthless as a weapon. An odd trophy.

    Nice sword, overkill on the demo. With any long sword, the only issue was you had to get the momentum to make it effective. The Scotts found out the hard way when their opponents simply fired their arrows to the ennemy on the left rather than straight on.

    I started seeing and thought "Ok, a couple of weirdos like to cut stuff. Not bad"
    Then they brought out a pig heads and I though "...Right then, insane weirdos."

    As a side note, little can beat a well-made samurai sword, which would lop this pathetic chunk of metal in two.

    True, little can beat a well made Japanese katana, but even that wouldn`t be able to lop a greatsword in two. If you watched long enough, that sucker went right through chain mail. It`s called the Greatsword for a reason.

    Not a chance. If the sword in the video is even fairly well made, it would go quite badly for a katana. It`s not a matter of east/west fanboism. It`s a simple matter of mass and velocity.

    I mean seriously, samurai armor was basically splint mail, which is leather, metal strips, and maybe wood depending on when it was made.

    Cold Steel has made some pretty gnarly products and they`re durable as hell and can stand up to a lot of abuse. I had one of their walking sticks before I moved and that thing had been through hell in the year and a half that I owned it...still looked like the day I bought it.

    I`ve pretty much been a fan of Cold Steel`s products for awhile. Not only do they make good collectables but they work as functional weapons.

    I still would be hesitant to put that great sword up against a Shinwa Katana any old day of the week.

    Then again, if you`re clanging swords together, expect the blades to get pitted and then the blades will break, I don`t care who makes `em.

    Actually, the average Katana is only about 28 inches from tip to butt.

    Someone with equal training with this sword would be able to keep a katana user at distance.

    An odachi however, 70 inches. Mainly a horseback sword, but longer than the great sword. Not a stabber, but it`s speed would give an equal a good advantage.

    You can argue about all the types of swords that are better. However in a real fight. It`s the knowledge and experience of the user on which sword will be superior. I would bet on any Olympic Fencing team member vs. the clumsy ill footed demonstrators with a huge sword any day. Even if they were wearing full armor or Average Joe Blow running around with his Japanese Katana etc...

    If it were really that great, it would`ve cut through the wood holding up the pigs head, the shoes were resting etc.

    Even if it wasn`t wood (couldn`t really tell) they claimed it cuts through heavy steel.
