    Talking Haunted Craigslist Katana?

    "SHE WILL MANIFEST, WHEN HOLDING THE SWORD.
    WHEN CALLED. SHE CAN TURN ON, ANY TURN TOP FLASHLIGHT.
    SHE MAKES HERE PRESENCE, KNOWN VIA HOT AND COLD SENSATIONS.
    BITEING NIBBLING.


    SHE FEEDS ON SEXUAL ENERGY."

    ....Umm.

    WHAT?!

    And this loony is trying to gip someone of 300 bucks! Apparently it's some generic (did not state maker name) made katana. This person only sells in person and is willing to demonstrate said manifestation if wanted. Thought this thread would be a nice distraction from all the serious sword talk out there.

    Makes sense, though. You'd want to see demonstrations in person, right. Just me?

    Haha thanks for warm welcome with my first legitimate post everyone!

    Now not to give you nightmares that would bring a bout of cold sweats but I actually DID dream of the blade in question just last night (or at least of the blade represented by the photo). I think it might actually be true! ...........nawwww.

    But I DID however, come this close -> <- to getting spiritual rabies.

    If you bring a broadsword, you can claim you hunt occidental demons and need to buy a katana so you can start going after akuma...XD

    Huh, $300 for a practical pro that feeds on sexual energy doesn't sound like a bad deal, might improve my cutting skills a bit.

    There have been quite a few "Craigslist robberies" on record. It's googlable.

    That's the other reason you meet in armor and bring your demon-killing sword.

    I've never had any experience with buying or selling things on Craigslist. I know folks who have, but none of them have bad experiences but honestly this one is just plain creepy. In a Dexter Morgan kind of way.

    If you do show up and he's in a trenchcoat, make a bee-line for holy ground.
