THIS SWORD RUINED MY LIFE, DON'T BUY IT. My life was great, I had a beautiful wife and a successful self-owned business. Then last week, a short portly gentleman with a short necktie barged into my slaughterhouse business and demanded I kneel before him...I declined. He unsheathed the Cold Steel and began destroying all of my meat in a whirlwind of fury, my business was gone. He turned to my wife and struck a gallant pose with Cold Steel, she couldn't resist him and fell in love and left me.
