Probably the best commercial for the best product I have ever seen.
But they missed out on a good size of change though. They should have marketed it as an anti-zombie weapon too:
"When the undead hordes come a knocking, you want something to knock back with. Hard!"

I want one! (but only because I realized its potential as a zombie deterrent. )

Gabe_b says...

I've lusted after a Coldsteel katana for maybe a decade. Maybe I'll have the money to burn when I'm as old and rotund as those dudes demonstrating
That pig head was really nap, but going through nine rolled tatami mats in one strike is really impressive. Oh well, back to Mount and Blade
Also - did they fill those boots at about 3:00 with meat? These dudes creep me right out

HadouKen24 says...

I'm just laughing at the first guy's trying to cut the standing tatami mat. If the thing leans over like that, you're doing it wrong. The guy clearly doesn't know how to handle that sword.

"Can I get one that doesn't make me look all retarded?"
Don't worry, you will only look retarded if you are fat and/or out of shape.

"I'm just laughing at the first guy's trying to cut the standing tatami mat. If the thing leans over like that, you're doing it wrong. The guy clearly doesn't know how to handle that sword."
Who cares, Einstein! That's the whole point. You can be a sword noob and still own with it. When some psycho will slash you with it, I don't think there will be any importance in which way he is leaning.

All in all, nice stuff. I would buy this for my farm and chop pigs/chickens with it.

chtierna says...

Anyone want to bet this will become a meme and then there will be a whole series of "Will it get slashed?" Cold Steel Adds for months and months until its just ridiculous and not funny anymore

i'd love someone to try and defend theirselves with one of these. -- "if you have one of these by your front door"..... if you have one of these by your front door, the attacker is already close enough to make a mess out of you with a kitchen knife. There's no sense in standing under a shower of plaster raining down looking like a muppet as you crane this ugly, huge, clumsy, and cumbersome thing into your living room ceiling.

JesseoftheNorth says...

Ha! I was thinking the exact same thing when I first saw this. I hope they didn't waste all that meat though.>> ^LarsaruS:

smooman says...

no one is gonna be able to take advantage of you when you have a greatsword built by cold steel...............unless they have a gun..........or theyre a ninja

those guys sure love to slice up some pork eh?
fucking loved it

AN ENORMOUS FLIPPIN ROLL!!!

Confucius says...

Well my Ginsus have finally run dull......and I have been in the market for a new kitchen knife. Sure it can cut pig and cow heads but what I really find myself asking is, how well will it cut carrots, onions and other vegetables? I understand the practical applications he's trying to promote but he would have really sold me if he showed me its versatility in the kitchen.

Hmmm, I may need a bigger cutting board....

zombieguerilla says...

Loved the gratuitous amount of dead animal hacking. Whomever came up with the idea to stick some meat in a old pair of cowboy boots to show you how easy it would be to chop off some cowboys toes is a fucking genius. They can have my $549.99.

SlipperyPete says...

Awesome.

I like how the guy warped the shit out of his sword by doing chin ups with it, then they cut to him standing there with an unbent sword.
Smells like trickery. If only I had something to chop at him with.

mxxcon says...

I'll take one if they have +12 damage to holy' model.

mm-mm..chopped boot meat, tasty.

"It's so effortless to cut" said the chubby man trying to catch his breath after one swing.

What about when your attacker is in full plate armour? Or in the midst of a pike formation? What then smartarse?

Truckchase says...

"Noone is going to take advantage of you, when you have a greatsword in your house"

.... except for someone with a gun. wait; let me be more specific:

except for anyone with a gun.

Hey guys! It cuts through steel! If someone tries to rob you whilst wearing a suit of armor (what a inconsiderate knight) you're set.

"You'll praise my name you're going to love this sword".

There is simply too much comedy in this video. Is this real?

Tyrsis says...

Meat in chopped boots = instant upvote

It takes a certain kind of crazy to not only come up with that idea, but convince everyone it's a good selling feature.

VoodooV says...

Well it's good to know the Star Wars kid will always have a job when the other guy with the Wilford Brimley mustache dies from a heart attack waving that pig sticker around

Aniatario says...

I don't think I have a sword that can cut through a shoe.
I don't think any of my swords are good enough to cut through shoes...
I'm gonna get this sword and cut my shoes off.

TheFreak says...

I have a few of these videos that were sent to me by a friend who was somehow involved in the production. Never opened them though. I had no idea there was this much awesome in those boxes.

And I have to say, the guy with the beard had pretty good cutting technique. The other guys...pure comedy.

I'm still perplexed by this... All jokes aside, I wondered about its intended purpose for a while... Then I found the official website... And this is what it purports:

"it will make short work of pikemen or swordsmen and will prove equally effective against modern rifle butts and bayonets."

?!!??!... What's next? We sail to the Holy Land and free Jerusalem from the Infidels? Deus lo vult?

The thumbnail is not missing. Your ad blocker is hiding it because the file name contains the word "advertising". We'll have to tell siftbot to alter such thumbnail names in the future.

VoodooV says...

I think the funniest thing about these videos is that, with the exception, of the fat dude, all the other guys whipping around these swords all look like your stereotypical good-ole-boy middle-aged former jocks, the last type of person you'd expect to be playing around with swords.
