No-one on the forums will buy one of these (except as a wallhanger, and thats only if it's any good - this blade looks more amature than the one I'm currently working on, and it's my 2nd attempt at a Katana)

    There must be a lot of gullible people on eBay, boy they'll get a shock when they need to liquidate their $200 "PPK" replica (in order to get the "PC Hanwei Ultra SUPER MAXPOWER Katana mkIII") and can only get $0.50 and a laugh in their face.
    yeah but they sell it for a few bucks and charge like 150 bucks in shipping its all a scam

    I think that you are all missing the point of this auction...

    It's an antiqued Paul Chen Pk or PPk with crappy fake chinese fittings.

    Much better quality than the "Craptanas" we've been seeing out of China in the past few years...

    At least Chen made the blade...

    Maybe...

    It is made by Paul Chen, not the Paul Chen we all know and sort of love, but Paul Chen the scam artist. Makes more sense. And it's not lying.... totally.....

    It costs so much to ship because they used cardboard made from the paper the Constitution was written on, as well as the tape used to hold the Nina, Pinta and Santa Maria together. They use the original Pony Express, and the insurance to cross Indian territory is astronomical. That's why it's so expensive, duh!

    Pass the flaming door, and destroy the undying dragon. Slay the 200 foot leviathan, and slay the 23 foot medusa. Pass the sea of flame into the trials of the aegis. Slay the 300 foot chimera, enter the next room. I will be there with a flaming sword.
