This really is amazing. The only thing that confuses me a bit is how the steel doesn't overweigh what the arms could hold, so if you tried putting them in a pose it actually doesn't seem too heavy. Swords look great and fit the figures perfectly.

Just like a real sword, most of the weight is at the handle. The blade itself weighs almost nothing. You can do all kinds of posing. Check out my Rai custom. The poses with the sword look pretty natural. The trick is to make the pummel (handle) the correct thickness so that it is held firmly.
This is a neat extension of the hobby and a lot of fun. Thanks guys for the kind words. OJJ

See, this is where my ignorance of steel/swords makes me wrong XD. Thanks for the correction, man. Also, keep up the great work!
