    Is my record actually broken? I ask because as the original record setter, the rules state "must follow form of current world record holder", I did NOT tape my swords together like Hans did. Taping them together makes this feat much, much, much easier. I just want to know the rules, so I can take my record back.

      Franz, what do you think? What do others think? Is the tape enough of a differentiator that we need to split this into two categories?

      This is difficult to assess. I confess that I did not pay attention of that. I swallowed more swords, but it is more difficult without taping them.

      The tape doesn't make it less impressive, it just shows Franz is smart

    Thank you Mr Rollman! Well being that I am a self taught sword swallower, research on the subject was essential. In my research I saw I learned only a single sword has been swallowed while upside down, and only a few have done it. I decided to try it, to keep myself challenged I tried more swords, skipped 2 and went for three. Why three? Because three ends in a :)

    Awesome feat, Nicholas. How did you think up such a record?
