Anyone got a sword?
Why do you have a sword?
I went home for the weekend and he was in the garage making an actual sword out of metal. Fucking weird.
Just look at it every now and then hopefully
Just hanging on his walls. For no reason.
of an arsenal to protect your family?
and nearly bought one of those little wooden pretend swords.
Didn't in the end as I realised there was fuck all point.
One has a little foam missing from the blade which looks like a genuine nick.
if i had the one with the nick, I'd need something to tip the balance to make it a fair battle.
I can defeat my son with ease.
I would give you a bongo that plays the macarena when you spin it as your second weapon. It's annoyingness is lethal.
I'm taking the cauliflower flail
any armour allowed, or is there some sort of other uniform to this duel to reduce the likelihood of bullying?
unless you are planning to distact me or a misplaced attempt to arouse me.
I was thinking one of those jester-type hats knobbers wear at festivals for head protection, a technical jacket around the torso and corduroys borrowed from theWza.
Apparently the grooves are so deep, a sword could get stuck between them and never pull free or so the legend says
I'm going to wear 400g of butter.
no thanks, I'll be using marge
made out of a cauliflower and string
I can think of four things you could have done with it and I'm not even trying.
Did it look realistic, or was it obviously a training sword?
reckon I'd have been found out in battle pretty quickly.
i hate them
Still not hugely sure why.
Sword Of Omens with a light up bit in the middle. That was good.
still do, now I think about it
Reckon it probably would've been too much for my brother and I to take.
otherwise how would the other avoid being beaten up?
this doesn't seem right
and she was a beautiful woman marckee
"yeah, just go up there into the big cage, it's right at the back"
Shame I didn't keep it as now I have to wear glasses.
We're growing up DiS.
I read that one as a joke about killing Ant's family, based upon who it was posted by.
Friend of a friend is into some kind of thi chi with swords thing, made the mistake of practicing outside a school, got two armed response units out. They confiscated his sword, bit harsh.
made with Damascus steel (has carbon nanotubes) and is therefore fucking mega awesome, will break modern 'pretend' metal swords, including cheap katanas etc. When I used to practice with it lots I used to accidentally hit brick and sometimes stone....which didn't hurt it none.
I got it when I was about 13, given to me by a group of shooters in somerset (I used to carry their shit for them, look after their dogs and flush stuff)
I spent a lot of time with it, in my teens.
I have had many other swords, I used to sell sword sticks at antique markets/car boots (they were not antiques). I had a hand and a half medieval tournament sword and a single handed tournament sword.
I have had various Indonesian and Malaysian swords and an African sword.
My most recent acquisition was about a year ago, a machete (which is a tool) I want a parang.
what do you mean by practice? Fencing?
its edges and therefore for slashing.
Practice would involve more katana ish moves (not the same but I presume you will be more familiar with that sort of thing)
Drawing the sword from the sheath and thrusting in one fast smooth movement.
Continual slashing by using a figure of 8 twisting movement of hand/arm in front of you, so that after one swipe, the momentum carries the sword round in a circle but with a 180 degree switch along the blade length and the 2nd swing coming down from the other side of your body, toward the opponent......hmm that's not very helpful is it.
Best not for me to put up a video though, not in the current political climate.
must be hard practicing with a full katana as you don't get the resistance of actually bringing it into contact with something
is good practice.
a) it may upset neighbours
b) mrs knees would give me a rollicking
c) don't want to encourage my boys or make em think its normal
awaiting the time he needs to use his ninja powers again, powers that not even his family know he has
