Doesn't Bugei use the Chen blades? I first started thinking that the Paul Chen Tiger folded katana was it for me, but the dimensions were too big, so now I like the Bushido folded katana,from Shadow of Leaves.
That one has no Bo-Hi.

I agree with Jeff. Anything offered by Bugei is going to be a cut above (pun intended) that sold by by more mass market retailers. A big guy like Barry could easily handle their Shobo Zukuri in the largest size sold. One of the great things about Bugei is that you can order swords in many different configurations of blade and tsuka length. I have one of their Limited Edition Golden Oriole's with a 14" tsuka and 28" blade. They have long since sold out of this model but the Samurai, Crane and Shobo are all great and under $1,000.00.

Regards,

Aside from Arkansas and Texas, are there any BUJINKAN dojo in this area (Louisiana)?

I was just talking to JanRa on IRC and he asked about Kunai dimensions...

[22:05] what are the dimensions of the standard kunai used in training?
[22:07] shiraishi sensei is making them in sets of 3
[22:07] yes, but i bought plates to saw a kunai out, need to know the dimensions for it
[22:08] length and width
[22:08] hang on, i'll measure mine
[22:08] of course the width varies along the length
[22:10] yes, but if you could measure the maximum width, i would more or less be able to estimate the shape
[22:10] ok
[22:10] small: 22cm long x 3 cm wide
[22:10] this will be just a prototype to show trainingmates tonight what they need for this year
[22:11] medium: 32cm long x 4.5cm wide
[22:11] 22cm= measured from bottom of handle to tip, or bottom of blade to tip?
[22:11] large: 42cm long x 6cm wide
[22:11] handle to tip, total length
[22:12] thanks
[22:12] np...
[22:13] do you mind if I post this to Kutaki? i think some ppl might find it informative
[22:13] sorry, could you measure handles length plz?
[22:13] there is no real distiction between the handle and the blade
[22:13] post away
[22:13] its all one piece
[22:13] okay, so it is a fish shape right
[22:13] yep

Hi Joe,

Yep, they work perfectly on a Playstation 2 at any rate! I think we in Europe share DVD regions with Japan, so there shouldn't be a problem.

My only problem is that I already have most of the Quest titles on tape, and replacing them with DVD's will be expensive. Still, I'm unlikely to be able to view my VHS tapes in 30 years time, whereas I probably will be able to see DVDs in reasonable quality. (I wonder if we will have holography by that stage - now that would be cool for budo recordings!)

Hi,

The server will be going offline briefly sometime in the next couple of hours, as I have to recompile the Unix kernel in order to enable support for the CD-RW drive, so that I can make cd backups.

The outage should be a brief one.
Thanks for your understanding.

-_-_-_-_-_-_-_-_
結果:

Kernel was recompiled twice and rebooted twice without incident. OS now supports CD-RW drive.
