droff1,

I'm gonna apologize in advance but I can't resist.

I noticed your hometown is euless which rhymes with clueless & that explains why your interested in the Katana

If I didn't say it Tristan (resident smartass) would have beat me to the punch. What can I say, your new. We get nicer after we've bust your chops initially.
Enjoy the site & consider yourself initiated. @ least by me. Others are in the wings waiting for their chance .

I've let up substantially on the Katana bashing. Now I'm focused on Idiot bashing- I'll never run out of material!

As a life long member of the foot-in-mouth gang it's reassuring to know that we can be a source of inspiration.

Tristan- I understand you and the never ending material for idiot bashing but still you never let a Kat go by without saying something. So let have it!

I'd head over to http://www.katanaplanet.com and pick their brains if you want opinions of actual Katana owners. Just a taaaaaaaaaaad less bashing over there.
