I spent 500 bucks on this meme only for UPS to fuck it up during the shipping process. The Blade weighs rough 20lbs with attachments that can increase the weight to 30lb. I can neither get refund, replacement, or repair. How the fuck do I get this handle back on and have it strong enough the force of 20lb blade being swung. Wood glue? Mending plates? FUCK!
>>2739026fucking weebsdrill a hole on both sides in the center, stick a dowel in it and then use wood gluehope for the best
>>2739026Looks like it broke right on a knot, what a cheap pos
now you have an 500 USD charcuterie board
>>2739026this nigga thinks he's guts or cloud lmao. what a fag
>>2739026lmao @ 30 pounds blade. Should've gotten a suburito instead of a meme.
Did you really pay $500 for a shitty piece of 2x12?
>>2739048WITH BULLNOSE EDGES!
>>2739026It broke on a fucking knot. Thst is 1000% a manufacturing defect. Get a refund because they NEVER shoukd have manufactured that with a fucking knot in the handle. Fucking clown tier. Rip those mother fuckers a new one. Refund only. Do not replace
>>2739026why would you spend 500 on that?
>>2739026holy shit OP got scammed hardcorethis guy literally just takes 2x12's, cuts a handle and adds a bevelhttps://ashmanathletics.com/collections/all
>>2739075Well now I know my new business
>that will be $1,259.95 USD plus shipping plus tip
>>2739079>>2739075holy shit it really is just a regular 2x12
>>2739079You could make that using 6' of steel pipe for a handle and spine then weld steel plate to the outside for roughly the same weight and about $100, and you could actually decapitate someone with it.
>>2739026get a refund, then buy an oak bokudo from japan for $100 on ebay
>>2739026Do you have a learning disability or brain tumor maybe?
>>2739026Either sister it with metal plates and wood glue, or throw out the handle, and carve a new one out of the bottom of the blade.
>>2739079not even select grade lumber. jeeezus fuck what a scam
Guys it's not a fucking scam or a ripoff. This thing is mastercrafted and well worth the price I paid. I just want a way to fix it,m not a chorus of kissless incel cucks jealous I have something cool and valuable.
>>2739028This.Its bad craftsmanship. The weakest place that will handle the most load had knot. It looks like it was cnc cut with no regard for the natural inclusions.You got scammed. Anyone with basic wood working tools could pump out 5 of these per day. It looks like automated power tools were used, so 500 per shift.
>>2739026$500 for a cricket bat?fuck me Also google how to fix a cricket bat handle. Same principle
>>2739169Master craft? Is it because he was masterbaiting while making it?
>>2739169>mastercraftedlol, lmao even. No one mastercrafting anything would include that many knots. And no "master" is going to refuse a refund/replacement on that, only a scammer would.>I just want a way to fix itRemake from scratch with better quality materials. Not joking.
I fuckin love this thread.OP, show us your materia.
>>2739026if your handy and have a pocket drill jig, jam the fucked up splinters back together and drill out a hole for a dowel. remove when drilled, and apply glue to fucking every fucking thing, and smush it in place. then send your dowel in carefully with liberal amounts of glue. wait for it dry completely. then sand it all down flush. when its all done, hang it up and cry because its a piece of shit that will never be useable at all.
due to high demand new orders can expect a 6-8 week delay in production time.
>>2739169It's a 2x12 the guy cut with a jigsaw and ran over the edges with a router. From your pic it broke on a knot which means he didn't even bother to do the minimum amount of effort to make sure the board he used didn't have a knot where the handle would be. It should have been stronger if he just glued 1x2 oak boards to the rough shape and routed it bit then it would take more than an hour to make because he would have to wait for the glue to dry.twrhn

Are they training to use a large heavy sword for any sort of real combat, or is it all cosplay, in which case I'd think appearance is all that would count. But OP paid 500 bucks for a simple board, and he calls it a training sword. I'm fucking at a loss to understand what is going on here. t. clueless boomer

>>2740538What steel did you use?
>>2739026I'm not sure the design would ever work, knot or not. It's all way too heavy to strike anything without that flimsy handle breaking. Is it made for striking things, or just swinging around like an asshole?Your best and only bet would to be what first post said.I would tell you to cut the breaks off flat and straight, drill the largest diameter hole that the handle can manage to fit inside, make the hole as deep as possible too, even up into the blade area, you may have to buy a special long bit for that, and you'll have to be super careful not to blow out a side while drilling it. Buy a hardwood dowel, and wood glue. Fill both holes with wood glue. Pound dowel in as deeply as possible and don't worry about glue all over the place. Then attach the second half and clamp if you can. Allowing a few days dry time, but make sure to wipe away your excess glue, or you'll be sanding it off later.

Guys, OP here. He has offered to send me a replacement if I cancel the claim I filed. Should I do it?
>>2742547Nope. He scammed you, get your money back.Retard.
>>2742547No, it was poor construction.

>>2739026Yikes. Likely a troll... and if not, given you bought this in lieu of DIY. However, in case you're serious, or somebody dumpsterdives this piece of firewood, picrel is how I fixed somebody else's CNC abomination of a plaque. Seems knowledge/consideration of grain is no more.
Seems like a cool helpful guy tho
What should I do now? He insist on giving me the replacement
>>2742807Tell him you're not interested and he can scam some other dumbass with the one he just made.
>>2740373I once welded a hilt onto a lawnmower blade and ground it into a machete, does that count?
>>2742807Fucking no lmaoGet your money back, you got scammedDon’t let them send you another $20 piece of wood
>>2742684Not one but two piths there next to each other. Orienting grain perpendicular to the long axis. That thing will crack soon anyway.
>>2742807>it's already been madeofc there isn't much to make
imagine sending the seller this thread
>>2742807why would he want to give you your $500 back when he can just make another $20 piece of shit and send that to you instead
>>2739026Why did you spend $500 on a pine board? You do know its just a pine board, don't you?
>>2742807kek he just wants to appease you so you don't fuck up his grift
>>2740762>Is it made for striking things, or just swinging around like an asshole?I mean, i doubt it matters either way, even just swinging that big board around in the air with that scrawny little pine handle is more than enough to break the thing. If it's intended to be a weapon, then shit, just picking up any decent size branch laying on the ground would be a much better choice.
>>2742805Damn op, I'm tempted to make you a real one so you're less miserable.
>>2742920^This. Make him famous and screencap this thread for reference.
>>2739026you spend $500 on a $20 piece of wood? wtf?

>>2742819with bench grinder? is grinding metal supposed to be fun? can you grind something to shape with angle grinder esp something kinda small
>>2739026The sword saga is over bros, I met him in person and he gave a replacement. Pretty cool chap, complimented My jesus stickers . I am satisfied
This thread can't be real
Wow look at that replacementwhat a fucking asshole that seller is, im honestly at a loss of wordshttps://ashmanathletics.com/collections/the-dragonslayers
>>2744332looks like he gave you a beat up used one, look at the holes
what a sad thread
>>2744415Pilot hole, drill final hole size just over halfway through on both sides.How the fuck does someone chip out their drilled hole so badly then continue to do the rest like that without stopping and fixing the issue?!
>>2744332I really hope this is an elaborate self promotion, as otherwise i can't even feel sorry for you, anon.
>>2739026congratulations you spent 500 dollars on a plank with 5 saw cuts. you could have /DIY/'d it with ease. no or minimal power tool, and a piece of lumber. you should burn it to learn a lesson.
>>2739079nigga hand selected a finest grade 1 Douglas fir with a fucking knot where the handle goes...a champ
>>2744332The tearout on those holes makes me sad
>>2739107If you go to a site like ebogu, or really any kendo place you can get bokuto much cheaper than $100. They sell weighted suburito and shit as well for pretty cheap.OP is a fucking retard who got scammed, I hope its not a real post.
>>2739026yeah...thats God trying to save you from embarassing yourself when you actually take that outside.
I’m the seller. I’d like to address a few things. First, the sword was $299, not $500. OP payed $337 including shipping. It includes the attachable weights and hardware for them. That’s what the holes are for. All swords cut, planed, routed, drilled, sanded, branded and are given multiple layers of stain and protective coating. I have stood on the swords between sawhorses to test the strength and they don’t break. UPS throws the boxes around, even with fragile stickers on them, so when I send out hundreds of swords, breaks are inevitable.I have replaced every single sword broken by UPS for free.I’m not scamming anyone, I sell exactly what I advertise. Giant wooden swords. I’m not forcing anyone to buy it, and plenty of people make their own. Mine are the best.The price reflects the cost of materials, gas for transporting everything, time it takes to make them, cost of renting shop space, tools and misc supplies, and paying my employees a fair wage. Not to mention making just enough profit to feed myself. Oh and everything is taxed.If you’re mad about the prices, blame the federal reserve for printing so much money that the dollar isn’t worth shit anymore, not me for pricing accordingly to the market.Same reason your $5 footlong cost $18 now.As for the Asta sword, it’s called preventative pricing. The sword took 3 days to make, and I don’t want to do it again.OP thank you for giving me the chance to make you another sword, I hope you enjoy training with it.
>>2745362It's a piece of wood.>hand selected grade 1 Douglas fir
>>2740368Seller here, UPS has as many road blocks as possible to stop you from getting a refund, even with shipping insurance. They're worse than an airline.
>>2740762It's just made for swinging around not striking things. But usually the handles hold up really well. I've had my original one for almost 5 years and I've beat the hell out of it, turned it into a skateboard, dropped it, etc, and I don't think that handle will ever break. But every piece of wood is unique, so sometimes breaks happen.
>>2745362>>2739075Let's pretend your post is real. How is this even a multiple men operation? Emphasis on multiple.And get a fucking counter sink drill.
>>2744332its looks like shit man...
>>2745362>I send out hundreds of swords (made from ordinary lumber and priced at hundreds of dollars each)HAHA AHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAAAAAThis has to be the best troll thread ever.

first those neck exercise contraptions now this i bet /diy/ could come up with a better fitness scam
Has anyone considered that this whole thread was probably started by the seller to create outrage and therefore exposure? You retards will believe anything.
>>2746080Exposing his own scam? (You) just called him a retard.
>>2746080apart from maybe data traffic I see no reason why. its not like anyone in this thread would buy one. hell, the most likely outcome is someone here steals the idea to rip off weebs themselves. it can only make competition for him. I struggle to believe this thread is real but I simply see no reason for it to be disingenuous
lmao this thread is surreal
This /diy/ + /a/ + /cgl/ + /biz/ crossover arc was a good start to the year
>>2739038Came to say this.

>paid 500 bones for this piece of shit>no refundsBait
>>2739026Imagine living in that fucking squalor and spending $500 on that hunk of shit. Has to be bait.
>>2748377I mean some people live in squalor because of unfairness but some people live in squalor because they’re fucking stupid. They will often go on to blame everyone else for their own stupid moronic decisions. “I should have nice things like a big house and a mercedes even though I piss away money like it’s free and the moment something broke on a house I would be utterly fucked and need someone to again bail me out because I can’t afford to repair my sewer line for 8k after I spent all my income on disposable gas station vapes, funko pops, and wooden swords that you swing around for some reason like exercise i guess?”
does the $500 at least include the weights?
>>2745362This is the wrong place to try to defend your productThat said I like a good ticky-tack garage business and I do genuinely hope you make a killing off your shit planks
>>2739079>GRADE 1 DOUGLAS FIR>>2739169Yes it is, you're just a retard>>2739260Cosplay fags are really weird.

>>2739026Make a claim with ups. You can get a refund. Don't eat 500 dollars man.
>>2739026However if you are going to fix it you'd have to use a metal plate on both sides of the handle drilled and bolted into place, but again there's no reason to eat the cost. But looking at the design I have to say it's likely to break right there anyway. I don't know why they made it flat. The force of a sudden stop or wind resistance is going to snap it regardless.
>>2739026>I spent 500 bucks on a plank
Check out this wood shield I bought from Cash Man for $399 including shipping.
Why would you use a big larper wooden paddle of a "sword" instead of a stick with weight on one end, or a kettlebell, or a clubbell?You could also try to use an actual paddle instead. Fucking idiot. I can't believe you bought a $500 piece of shit wood instead of diying something more robust and functional.
>>2739026>paying for a piece of shitty pineYou deserve it
>>2739169>This thing is mastercrafted and well worth the price I paidlol. lmao even

>>2749044>OP is the dude that runs the siteIf so he's playing 4d chess because he inflated the price according to the web site and the supposed post from the site owner above. My own opinion is that OP started sincere, then tried to turn it into bait later on, and maybe the site owner posted even later, but not likely in my opinion.The real takeaway is that the site owner sells this garbage to pathetic dweebs and laughs all the way to the bank.
Looks like Assman has some competition.

>>2749331I couldn't find their application for Dragonslayer, but I did find the application for Ashman. He only filed it back in September.
>>2739027this. you can also try runing a couple bolts through metal brackets on either side (one through the handle the other through the blade) on top of that to add extra support but it might make it really uncomfortable to use and there's no guarantee it won't just break again even more catastrophically.
>>2739026You mean to tell me I can sell $10 of wood for $500 if I market it to weebs as a "training sword"???You son of a bitch, I'm in

>>2740538Training swords training swordsI actually made a pair of Indian mace clubs from a piece of tree I found army a wildcat dump ( where people start just dumping trash, broken furnitur, any kind of old appliances TVs , matresses n boxframe, clothes etc.) on edge of town.I actuallyhad a HF woodlathe gifted to me years ago but never used.Well I used it and just mostly eyeballed it and came out with a great set of clubs. I just watched a few yowtube videos on how to use woodlathe and pow, now I can do basic shit.I also made a very heavy club out of a very dense mesquite log I had that had cured in the sun for a few years. Just used a handsaw, hatchet, woodchisels, big cabinet file, and sand paper.Fileing and sandpaper took the longest. It was well worth it. Some places want to charge thousands for a pair not including shipping. I am way beyond what I used to be in strength and agility and flexibility before I started club training four years ago

>>2749331You don't actually need to register a trademark to put a tm. It's an informal form of trademarking. If it were registered it would have that R in the circle.

>>2761297> coming soon
Getting scammed into buying a broken walmart kitchen counter wouldn't have happed if you had STUDIED THE BLADE.
>>2759196If you've actually read through this thread you will realize that OP is 100% serious and has already been given a replacement because he was too much of a pussy to go through with the charge back. See >>2744332

>>2739038>>2746853>>2749286This dork should have just swung a big metal pipe around like that autist on /fit/, but I guess that wouldn't feel like his heckin wholesome vidya
>>2739026OP has given up. Wipes his boogers right on his bedsheets, doesn't even fix his fitted sheet. Bet the house is a cat piss-soaked ruin. A fool and his money are soon parted.
>>2765894Op is the guy who makes the swords. He broke one, decided to larp as a nerd (probably wasn’t much of a stretch, probably posts on /fit/), and it probably paid off. I bet this drove a decent amount of traffic to his site and maybe even got him a sale or two
