    About 200 Baht, but if you bargain well, you might get them lower. Should be a great addition to your living room wall. Cheers.

    I always fancied a nice matched pair (long and short) on a stand - on wiser reflection I figured my missus has enough sharp instruments to hand without me adding to the total....

    Being hacked up by you're pretend Samurai Sword when the missus is pissed off, just doesn't tickle my fancy (she'd use the little sword and have that off too...).

    200 baht? maybe for a kids plastic sword.

    the prices for full sized swords ranged from 1,800 baht to 5,000 baht (they had price labels on them so this wasn't the vendor trying to screw me)

    i bought the 1,800 baht one but i managed to knock it down 1,000

    a Samurai sword for B1000! what a deal

    beautifully hand-made over weeks, crafted from the finest steel

    Reheated and folded 100's of times no doubt to increase the strength, naaa, I reckon they are just the old fake copiy ones at a 1,000baht a throw still they look alright on the wall as an ornament, not everyone can afford a Mona Lisa painting like mine, or maybe that sunflower one I have, probably time I sold them
