I know there seem to be a number of sword incidents. I know the Boardwalk & Park Place game store in the Mall sells some pretty big swords. I always thought it would be cool to have some medieval sword on the wall. You never know when might come in handy lol

It's -very- cool to have a (some) medieval sword(s) on the wall. :-)

I would caution anyone though that the stuff in mall stores is usually of fairly poor quality. OK as a wall hanger, but will likely come apart if actually swung at something.

I showed a friend's son this video about the dangers of cheap swords made with brittle steel. People who are going to get a sword that may see actual use, should get one from Cold Steel, or someplace else that is in the business of making good blades.

Ramius, I assume you may know some good sword makers?
