    Figured it'd be good to have a nice weapon appreciation thread. Showing what we have.

    As of right now I only have two swords which are just show pieces, not really worth posting. But the two I do have worth posting are my dagger and my pride and joy, which you'll see beneath the dagger, all black:

    Here's a slightly different view:

    The cool thing about the double-sided blade is it's intended purpose. It's not necessarily an engaging weapon. But it's best-used just kind of hurled blindly into a crowd of attacking enemies. lol

    Finally found time to get out in the field. No Muley bucks today (at least, not in a legal location), but looking forward to the rest of the weekend.

    Just use this site:

    www.photobucket.com

    It does all the work for you, as long as you know where your pics are on your computer. Create an account at photobucket (it's free), then use the upload tool just like you uploaded your Av. It gives you the code for links as well, just use the one with the "[​IMG]

    this is my battle-ready sword i had forged at the PA ren-fair. its fully tang, which means that if i hit something it won't break at the hilt, like all those replica kitanas goth people like to pretend they are highlander with!!!

    Looks good man. But I might have to find a way to re-size the first one since it's ginormous.

    I think photobucket has a re-size tool. Or if you want I can re-size it and host it for you.

    her name is "consequence".

    She was given to me by my brother before he moved out of the country to watch my back.

    Handmade
    440 stainless steel.
    Blade catcher good for disarming
    Index finger guard to stop disarming, and reversals.

    she's sharp and thte devil's toe nails.

    Excellent curve to that blade.

    Have you tested it's sharpness?

    I had a pair of Nunchaku once that were vulcanized rubber with steel re-inforcement (like tires).

    It REALLY sucked to fuck up when using them.

    In front of my computer, it seems
    The great thing about having a dad who is a very, very serious collector of cutlery is that I get cool knives for gifts.

    I don't have actual pictures of my pig-pokers (can't find my crap digital camera) but I do have pics.

    1) Benchmade Bali-Song knife, with titanium handles and surgically sharp blade.

    [​IMG]

    2) Swedish Fallkniven combat/survival knife. Nicely balanced with a thick, sharp blade and neoprene handle

    [​IMG]

    3) What self-respecting Jarhead would be without a K-Bar; my bro bought me one when I graduated from Parris Island.

    [​IMG]

    My father, who has been collecting blades for about a dozen years and who is fanatically serious about it (he rarely ever buys production blades anymore, only custom jobs from master smiths) recommends the Chen swords. As Japanese swords go, they're really quite reasonable; I believe that a good, serviceable samurai swords (katana, wazikashi, or tanto blades) that can stand up to use (not wall-hangers) will start out at about $200-$250 per inch of blade or more.
