Looked at riding lawn mowers today because we are able to move onto a property with some land finally.

Got to thinking it would be cool to see everyone's newest toys to envy over. :D

Well, my newest toy is a work in progress. I picked up a Santa Cruz Blur XT and a 140mm Fox Float R last year and I'm piecing it together as I come across deals.

A couple of weeks ago I scored a new Shimano XT Shadow rear derailleur, a set of new Maxxis Igniters, a lightly used RaceFace seatpost, and XTR shifter for 100 bones. Just need to scrounge up a few more bits and pieces and I will have one bad ass 5" travel XC machine.

Years ago, I was on a wave runner and wearing my wedding ring. It shot off my finger like a bullet. I watched it fly through the air and plummet into the Assawoman bay (that's really what it's called).

While I was in Ireland in 2002, I bought a replacement wedding ring at Kylemore Abbey in Connemara. That was also the year that I started mountain biking and lost a bunch of weight so my new ring was now too big and kept falling off my finger.

So what's the moral of the story?

What grade of Steel? Katana is more a dictation of length and blade curvature as opposed to point.
Well since I can't ascertain the Rockwell hardness or length from those photos, the point will have to do. The ones that I have seen have very distinct angled tips. Of course, since all of my knowledge of Japanese swords comes from the History Channel, I'm no expert.

You can still be an internet expert.

It is a katana, Damascus blade -- and quite sharp. Feels good in the hands. There wasn't a hardness rating given from the seller. I wasn't worried about it. It's the nicest, by far, of the three I have.
