The cold steel blades are forged in a way that makes them suceptable to cracking. I think "our use" means live cutting, a lot, not that it is exclusive to "us", but I could be wrong.

If a sword breaks or fragments durring live cutting it becomes a serious hazard to the user as well as the spectators.

The blade you own may not have cracked, but the way they are made makes them more likely than other blades to do so.

I was at the same seminar as Mr Deltoro when this was mentioned.
