When you are deciding to make a large purchase how often do you look at the reviews online for that product? Dropping hundreds of dollars on an item sight unseen is a big risk and can give us a fair bit of anxiety. Thankfully, we live in an age where anything we want to know is at our very fingertips. Reviews and unboxing videos have made it easier to make a more informed decision regarding those products that we just aren’t sure about. YouTube channels dedicated to giving us information and opinion about our interests are abundant and often helpful in our decision making. The channels and personalities that are broadcast across YouTube have made the process of fact finding much easier and lend a familiar face to the buying experience. I found a great channel with sword reviews for the collector, user and novice, the interested but not sure, and the hard-core lovers of beautiful swords and knives. This group of guys are enthusiastic collectors and have the knowledge that I would look for when purchasing these incredible works. Jon, Vic and Scott are a team that all contribute different things to this new channel. I asked Jon how long he has been cultivating his collection of the types of swords that are reviewed on their channel, he said:
“We’ve been into it for a long time.
But we just had to wait until we started making adult money. Cuz swords ain’t cheap.
I mean, I got my first sword functional sword probably 16 years ago, and finances have allowed for more routine collecting for the last 10”
This group has a lot of information under their belt and the reviews show it.
As of right now the only platform they are on is YouTube, eventually there will be other social media to get this information from them and keep up with what they are doing. For the time being go and check them out. Great people, great information.
