    I wanted to find out how well each brand of sword would hold up to various tests. I just completed the test cutting on rice mats, which turned out much different than I had expected.

    Rice Mat cutting - rice mats are rolled tightly around a 3/4 inch dowel (this represents cutting skin and bone and is considered equivalent to cutting through someone's upper leg, which is harder than cutting through the neck), binding them with rubber bands (or ties), and then soaking in water for 12 hours or so.

    Let me know what you think.

    Very interesting, I look forward to the next step of testing. I think this is exactly what many potential shoppers of "real" swords are looking for.
