I've always wondered that, how it doesn't cut the shoulder. And then I remembered swords aren't that sharp, and as long as it isn't moving fast there isn't a reason for it to be able to cut anything. Also probably they rest it on the flat of the blade. Makes sense with European blades that are symmetrical.
Hasdgh I love Cecil's design and your coloring skills o-o I backed the kickstarter, I wish you the best of luck! ;u; (though you probably don't need it because your stuff is amazing and a lot of people dig it <3)
