It sure seems like it.
A samurai sword really classes up an edged weapon attack. A machete can be purchased at Walmart.
I am going to research the # of incidents in the state of WA. It is unreal. I looked it up once, just the other day a woman killed her boyfriend with a sword, he was cheating on her.
Periodically there is an incident where "A man with a sword has shut down traffic"
I need to research samuri sword incidents nation wide.
I'm going to go out on a limb and say Tyler Texas will be mentioned at some point. Any weird criminal shit that can be conceived of will occur in Tyler Texas for some mysterious reason.
Wished I could afford a real one. :/
I hear you! Mine is made of cubic zirconia.
"real" as in an historic piece/signed master work, or real as in crafting methods?
because the latter starts at under $350...
1. I spelled Samurai incorrectly
2. Some incidents are just swords
3. I will begin posting them in no order.
hmmm.....I'm intrigued! Like my longbow, this is a weapon I can practice with without upsetting my neighbors. Then again my wife thinks I'm "accident prone" so I don't know.
You break your hand one time playing "ultimate frisbee" and you're branded as accident prone. Okay I do have a shit-ton of stitches too so maybe she's on to something here.
Regardless/irregardless I would like to try one out. I'm sure I could learn the technique from youtube.
1. Elma man with sword blocks I-5 Traffic (2013)
2.Man with samurai style sword has 11 hour stand-off with Seattle police (1997)
3. Seattle man kills brother with sword (January 2019) (Thought victim was turning into a lizard)
4. Camas WA-Woman attempts murder on boyfriend for cheating (March 2018)
Some of these that I havent' posted are just sad. I am done for now. I thought there was another incident of a man wielding a sword in Seattle, but maybe not.
There can be only one?
Just remember with a katana, it's push with your top hand, pull with your bottom hand.
As in something a smith made using traditional techniques.
That's what she said!
so, more high end? They're gorgeous collector's pieces, but I'd feel bad getting one scuffed....
It'd be kind of like starting your gun collection with a brown bess that's never been fired-and then doing whatever the gun equivalent of playing in the mud with it is.
no matter. whatever direction or degree blade collecting takes you, enjoy.
There was a machete incident today in Portland.
"Samurai Sword" is kind of equivalent to "Assault Rifle". I used to have a replica that looked kinda like the real thing (cost maybe $30..it was a while ago), but the only that was sharp was the point. It was definitely not a Samurai Sword, so I would be skeptical of media and police reports. As an aside, I got a nasty surprise a few years ago when an article showed up in Florida (where else?) that said a former classmate at my dojo had been arrested for assaulting his girlfriend with a "Samurai Sword". The guy was not real smart and made himself unwelcome for being a git, as the Brits would say, but it was still a shock. So it's not just Washington.
Side note about "samurai sword" that might seem nit-picky but indulge me: in the Doobie Brothers song "China Grove" there's a line that goes "Sheriff and his buddy with a samurai sword"
TWO FUCKING DIFFERENT CULTURES/COUNTRIES you dumb fucks! It's like AC/DC and "Thunderstruck" you don't get "struck" by thunder, you get struck by lightning.
Thunder is superheated air and might blow out your eardrums or give you a concussion but trust me - that will be the least of your worries because the associated lightning will fuck...you...up!
Okay maybe I need to ease off on the morning coffee throttle a bit.....
Thunderstruck: gobsmacked, astonished, astounded, stunned by incredible something, etc.
oh I get that! But the very concept of "thunderstruck" which spins off into these other words should have been dismissed once mankind discerned the effects of thunder versus the effects of lightning.
Just sayin'! Queen is guilty of this too with "thunderbolt and lightning very, very frightening" line.
thunder striker, hold the lightning?
can't see the image - white X in a black box on my end
Concussion grenade? Those are pretty awesome! I never got to handle those when I was in, only frag grenades. My son got a bloody nose one time at the grenade range (long story) when he was in basic training around 2012 or so. Kids grow up so fast!
Side note you want to experience some scary shit? Go to grenade training with a bunch of KATUSA (Korean augmentees) who can barely speak English and can't throw for shit....that will put hair on your chest & build character as they say!
