I don’t know what you mean about “Designed especially for woman.”

Please explain.

Thank you,

What a gorgeous thing.

Just the other day we had an outbreak of zombies. I was forced to use a baseball bat and I can tell you it gets tiring after a while.

That is a beautiful work. And it would come in handy when I send the wife out to deal with the pesky neiborhood zombies.

Very stylish. I especially like the pommel work and the work on the flat of the blade.

Nice solution to a perplexing problem. I guess I hadn’t thought of that solution.

I see I need to get into a new line of work.

I guess I used the Tony Ennis line of reasoning before.
