Craig made a purchase this last weekend. And he wanted to show it on the blog. He has been going to a sword shop for the last year and with much understanding on the responsibilities of what he was purchasing he was allowed to make his first purchase. Knowing that this is not a toy and needs to be kept up, that he was purchasing a weapon and understanding the responsibilities that he needs to demonstrate. Knowing that at the slightest disrespect for this weapon he will lose the ability to own the sword.
