The guys on Sword Buyer's Guide seem to have great fun placing water filled plastic bottles on wooden stands and cleaving them in twain. I have a sword. ;-)
This was a 1/2 gallon and a gallon milk jug. Sliced through cleanly and left the bottoms right there where they started. The top pic is how it landed. The bottom I just moved the gallon top half.
So, my thoughts:
1) It was fun building the stands and slicing some bottles up. It's always great when I find a project to use some of my scrap wood. I had a lot of fun stretched over two days.
2) As expected (feared) this is not really a slicing blade. Badger blades are built for strength, not speed. Most slices went through, but not necessarily as cleanly as I would have liked. It was probably a combo of me swinging, my sharpening job, and the sword's capabilities. I'm sure I was most of the problem.
3) In previous testing, this sword proved excellent in clearing saplings and brush along the drainage ditch out back.
4) In short, it's a better hacker than slicer, and
5) I'll behead the holy hell out of an ogre if I ever see one.
