I've heard good things though, but the earliest I'll be able to get it will probably be about 2 months from now. Hopefully it'll at least drop in price before then.

You don't use your instruments for anything more than personal satisfaction. Just like I would get from collecting swords.

The only kind of sword I would want to own as a display piece would be an antique one, from a time when swords were actually a relevant part of life. I would feel an unfathomable amount of shame if I decorated my wall with some kitschy piece of overpriced crap made by some goddamn nerd with a blacksmithing degree or whatever.

I've always had a thing for Japanese swords and old Claymores.

Cold Steel makes awesome swords and I would buy one in a second if they weren't so damn expensive.

That's an old FBI statistic. An average human male can close 21 feet (about 7 yards) distance in 2.5 seconds. By the time I just typed that, he'd be on you and you'd be dead.

Knives are devastating at close range. Anyone who thinks otherwise should do some study on knife wounds (specifically slashes) - a good slash from a sharp knife can open up like 3 inches wide and be as long as the the travel of the blade. It's nasty stuff.

I think swords are pretty cool. Like having them hanging on the wall as a decoration. Also if you have em hanging around you could use them as a weapon in case your house gets broken into. It actually happened close to where I live. There was like a house invasion then someone grabbed a decorative sword to protect themselves and the thieves ran off and were later caught.

I also like knives, my boyfriend gave me this cool little fold up knife that looks like a mini butcher knife when I open it. I also have a Desert Storm knife in my room somewhere but I can't find it. Oh and I gave my sister this cool saw like looking knife.

Actually I use them in recordings and I play them in jam sessions with friends and I use them for guest lectures in the world music and music appreciation classes at my college. How are those swords working out for you?

They were actually quite useless for combat from about 800AD onwards until the end of plate armour around the 1700s

EDIT:
What you really want is one of these


Or if possible something similar to:

I would love to get an antique Scottish Claymore, as I am Scottish myself. I used to love Samurai swords until I found out how goddamned weak they were (useless against plate armour, and samurai would take about 6 with them into battle, because they were so sharp they'd just break).

Swords are pretty badass though.

Can't really help it when you're in primary school and your parents leave. Either way I'm in Uni.

Im actualy quite interested in swords, being an ex-blacksmith and also a history nerd it's the way that different types of swords throughout history have been made that interests me.

For example, the way that the Japanese katana or "samurai sword" is made using a traditional folding process that results in several layered steels with different carbon concentrations is fascinating, and I also find the wavy pattern on the blade that this technique results to be aestheticaly pleasing.


But what I also find fascinating is that, apparently purely by chance, the Saxons developed a very similar complex method of making swords to the Japanese, only they added twists to the folds in the metal, which create a much more complex pattern on the blade.

This was found just outside Uppsala, and is believed to be from about 900 AD.

Didn't do 'em much good when Christopher Lee came riding into town. I heard he killed like 4000 of the poor bastards.
