Your blades are better than the web and vids show. Really satisfied so far. Our Kung Fu school like most practice several varieties of weapons. I specialize in the knife, sabre, staff, and Qua Dao (shorter heavier Naginata). I am also a collector, my collection of hundreds of blades, range in styles and quality all focused on functionality. The ZT blades are in a category of their own. By far the most well rounded design, and are now my favorites of all my collection. Thank you for both excellent customer service and quality.
