A long while ago, either here or on the old forum, I posted a request for tips on where to get aluminium broadswords. I chased a few leads but go nowhere.
One of my sihings recently visited Taiwan and located a store that stocks these. He kindly brought me back a pair, along with a business card.
For those looking for aluminium broadswords (light but not too flexible), the details are below:
