"At any given time, medieval Germans could expect to have to cut through any number of stationary items filled with meat."

I'm totally past justifying my like for some of the CS products; these are some guys with serious, serious issues. If I'm ever attacked by a hanging 8 inch length of rope, I know what giant piece of steel I'm going to use to try to overcompensate with.
And that ending. Oh man.

Swords will fucking cut you wide open...if you're a soda can, a boot with meat in it, or a cardboard tube.
Ever since someone commented about it on one of the other Cold Steel videos, I can't not think "moneyshot" when they display the blade after a cut.

All I can think of is the episode of Home Movies where McGuirk buys all those swords.

As absurd as this is, I have to admit that if I could make a living cutting the fuck out of random objects with random swords, I'd so be there.

There are ren-fests who would be embarrassed to have that backdrop.
And what would it be like working at the same office park as these guys? "Oh Christ, those nerds next door are cutting open trash cans again..."

These people have crafted highest-quality weaponry for the sole purpose of wasting food.
Judging by Mr. Necktie here, I'd say it probably didn't go to waste.

I think we should re-name this "fat guys with bad form".

The majority of their sales are to guys who make the fat kid from the video who shows off his katana handing look like the hippest guy alive.

I am just waiting for that fatass to put his back out.

4:10 A dude who's not fat?!

No god no not my cardboard viscount!

The sword dude I hung out with was in the SCA, he said sharp didn't matter in Awesome Swords as much as being balanced and heavy so you can bludgeon people to death no matter what they're wearing. He was physically fit though, not sure many fat nerds would have the stamina to beat someone to death if they fought back.
SCA nerds are walking proof of the old saw "a little knowledge is a dangerous thing"
After five minutes in the library, SCA nerds are experts at everything before like 1800.
Yeah, for most SCA folk that's unfortunately true.
Medieval swords weren't heavy. 2.5-3.5 lbs is pretty typical. Sharp, springy, and balanced did matter. That said, there are very very few accounts of swords defeating armour of the day (why wear armour if it doesn't work?). And besides, if the dude could afford nice armour, you wanted him alive for a ransom anyway.

That's funny. This sword tastes an awful lot like foot.
Also, "grosse" is pronounced "gross-ah," not "gross."

PUT YOUR SWORD WHERE YOUR MOUTH IS

Three dollars to whomever can link the boot full of meat tag
