Most of that stuff wouldn't last a trip through someone's backyard, much less the Apocalypse. Low quality junk. Sadness.

EDIT: Just checked their survival/utility knives and found SOG, Cold Steel, and KaBar. Okay, they've got SOME stuff worth having...

Well that's all excellent but... the name.

Calumon: The name "EDGES of Reality." is kind of EDGY with that lawsuit thing going over the EDGE!

Wait, getting from weapons quetionable sources...

This isnt going to turn into Persona 3 is it?

Got to get ready to fight those shadows...

Those throwing axes are badass-- people just don't throw axes like they used to.

Display swords and all that are pretty but yeah most of that stuff is probably not much tougher than cast aluminium.

Holy shit

I'm going to be the most dangerous lunatic in town.

(Yes, they have a bunch of collector and replica garbage, but if you take time to search the site, there are areas where they have real stuff

Currently waiting for them to be sued by edge games for using the word edge :)

That Axe is $30, it is for display.

For a $30 (outrageously cheap for something that big) display axe, it is made of...let's see.

Well, not balsa wood.

The handle is hardwood and the head is stainless steel, sounds pretty good to me! Who knows how it would handle stress over a long period of time, but I imagine you could get at least a week out of it for hardwood and stainless steel.


I can be the Penguin!

It would be nice if the site would tell you on all items which of the swords you could slice a man in half with and which you would have trouble cutting butter.

Well, it's a nice discount.

I won't be needing it myself, as I'm well prepared for the apocalypse, with a hatchet, a Ka-bar knife, a switchblade, 2 guns, that being a Winchester 70 Rifle and a Webley 6 Pistol, and perhaps a crossbow soon, if I can afford it.

I'm not actually sure why I own all that stuff though....

I play too much Fallout.

What a trustworthy looking site.

I would love to buy them...but no idea if it could ever come through UK customs...

For a little less than that, I have a 12" throwing knife I can put through cinder blocks till the cows get home, and still be able to throw it (and expect it to stay in the target).

I DID admit they have SOME stuff worth having, but most of this stuff shouldn't be used for anything other than hanging on a wall. They are made of inferior steel, which means they're very likely to break, which can cause serious injuries.

Let us not forget the HSN Katana Salesman.

Actually...

Keep in mind, THAT blade was 440 Stainless, most of these are 420 which is a weaker material.

I am somewhat of a weapons-snob.

I see at least one weapon that I already own that's more than twice the price I paid for it.

Then again I got it at a flea market.

Holy crap, I actually have that display axe!

As for the website, I'll take a better look around later, but they didn't impress me right off the bat as well as Cold Steel did. They have more than just bladed weapons, which really caught my attention. When wanting a good survival tool and weapon, I'd probably have to go for their Special Forces Shovel.

I guess if they sell Cold Steel stuff, that's cool. :o

Ok, you've made your point.

But there is a bit of a difference, he hit a thin blade lengthwise, hard. whereas with this axe you would hit a much thicker blade EDGEWISE (and I can't see a battleaxe blade swung edge first bending like that). But yeah, I see your point.

That was the back of the blade, not the flat. It's a common stress-test for swords and knives.

They have a contact form here: http://www.edgesofreality.com/contact_us/

Let them know you'd like a bit more delineation of the higher quality stuff (or whatever you'd like to see that makes it easier to navigate). I imagine if the suggestions result in more people buying things, they'd love to have the feedback.

Jaredin:

According to their FAQ they only ship to the US and Canada.

This makes me somewhat sad, until I remember that I have a reasonably prices, relatively local provider of all my sharp and pointy needs here.

Remember, kids, two words that are important when it comes to "replica" swords and other such weaponry:

FULL TANG

Be wary of half-tang and run away from stub-tang if you're going to do anything more than hang the thing from a wall or put it on a stand.

Also, the theme combined with this post reminds of how my hatred for Max Brooks was sealed- the day I watched a video of him walking onto a stage and claiming that a katana was the best weapon to have in a zombie apocalypse. Yeaaaaaah no. It's useful for cutting off heads, sure, but absolutely nothing else- and since the zombie apocalypse means staying nimble and lightweight, having a weapon that can't double as something else- and must be either slung over the shoulder or hung from the hip, either potentially causing problems should the owner need to squeeze through tight spots- is more trouble than it's worth.

Crowbars, knives, E-tools (collapsible small shovels), hammers/wrenches- these are all both weapons and useful tools in one. Try to pry open a door with a katana and you'll very quickly end up with a tanto.

Jack and Calumon:

...uh oh. This could lead to the only thing more frightening than a zombie apocalypse- a lawyer attack.

I was a bit disappointed to hear that it was America/Canada only, but thanks for that globalgear site, nice to know there's somewhere for us Aussies to buy insanely dangerous weaponry as well.

EDIT: Hmm, some interesting survival gear I'm interested in.

No problem. Most of their stuff is really high quality too.
