It’s a Hanwei Tinker longsword blade blank with The Printed Armory hilt furniture. The edge still needs work but it’s a fair handling blade all in all.

Nicely done! A fair number of us have soft spots for Tinker Bare blade projects.
Now the sword shall come from under the cloak.

My apologies for the delay, it's been rain, rain, rain here.

The original intent with this challenge was to cut empty bottles.
As you may note, however, there's a fair amount of wind where I live. So I put just enough water in them to keep them from blowing away (most of the time).
Two cuts to make it twice as fun/infuriating! Sorry about the poor videography, wind blew the camera over too!

Nice! So a total of four bottles or two?

Two, I just did it twice so figured why not include it.

Well, they got cut, just not all the way through. What do you think Odigan? Wish I had your good form :mrgreen:

It's tricky!
Definitely helps to use a downward diagonal strike, forcing the bottle against the stand at least momentarily to start the cut since they've so little mass to resist the impact.
So this is a good speed and edge alignment test.
And there's much in my form to be critical of!

Seems like this game has lost its momentum! Got any ideas to re-invigorate it, or has its time passed?

I failed miserably. I don't have the edge requirements necessary to pull this off.

So it's the bottom bottle first and then the top. I used the cap-squish method to stack them. Wow works good! Good luck!

I’m still here. I swear all I’ve done is watch it rain here in Illinois. My work is also at the peak of its busiest season.

Im also wrapping up what is going to become my new everyday common man ranging sword. I will need to get it out and put it through its paces.
