    ok you can laugh so did I when I was talking to a friend the other day on Skype about weapon this idea but if works .i have friends who live In country’s that have some strange gun laws .they hope to make here in the us where they have stored items that they need if something goes wrong but if not they do have a sword and knives and other needed for each person to survival .
    They live in Japan you can own weapons but it long and cumbersome thing to do
    It one weapon that does not need to reload it has a no shelf to worry about plus it a great silent weapon choice for attacking inside a forested area or building in the narrow hallway and others that something he and she bought up in the talk
    Training time is basic as a handgun or rifle it can be taught anywhere and without have to worry about noise of a weapon beening fired
    Plus I will bring these the Chinese military still use horse cavalry and sabers.so inmage that you have to deal with it.
    Here is some of photos I found in diff areas of the Chinese military using sabers .these units are called big sword units and there are still units in the military practice with a sword.sorry for some of the double posted pictures

    I like the idea of having the option, I'm afraid the physical training to be effective and safe would be more than I'd be capable of

    You may not have to reload the sword, but the guy holding it will need it. That said, I want nothing to do with the wrong end of one.

    Like all weapons, if you aren't it's master you will likely become its victim.

    Image dealing the cavalry n a flat open plains of Kansas.i know that tank and trucks will work also but image having to go back to basics of moving to engage cavalry units like in the old days or having along side a modern tank a infantry fighting vehicles doing a ambush on them and having them come out of nowhere on you

    I would rather face an army on horseback armed with swords than one with tanks and select fire battle rifles, but either way I'd die in battle either when I got too tired to fight or ran out of options and ammunition.

    Had bayonet training 50 + years ago, never was meant to be used in combat per se, was good exercise, mental preparation for combat, and got your full attention and practice, well padded I might add, with the TI developed a good sense of humility as you got your butt handed to you.

    IMO most people would be better served by a pole arm than a sword. Also, pitchforks and axes have multiple uses.

    Swords rocks. Most people, without training in them, would not believe how effective they are, or what all you can get away with with them.

    Ditto on an Ax! Especially Ships Axes! While there are many types and styles, I find the curved pike medium blade with a 24" handle seems to be about the best balance and very useful! I actually ran hand to hand drill and I introduced to concept of fighting axes to my team mates, all were impressed and soon found their own types and styles that served them well over the years!

    Held right , the spoon becomes a nice inconspicuous close quarters weapon. If I've got to fight , I'd rather be holding a rifle , otherwise it needs to be in the element of surprise , and quick. I'm to old to be doing long term acrobatic shit.

    Reminds me of the movie "War Horse"
    I enjoy swords as well and have/had several .
    My son and I took fencing together , probably the most fun we ever had.
    Sword fighting is not all foot work but reading one's opponent , and correctly anticipating their moves.
    I have both real working swords and those wall hangers , as well as practice swords and those I call consumable reserved for show and completely expendable. Bamboo and wooden swords are for training and sparing , but my first love is fencing . I have a few foil that are in workable shape and a pair that are actually deadly. ( sharp pointed. )
    A machete does not actually make a good fighting tool against a true sword , it's not a thrusting tool, strictly hacking by design .
    And while hacking has it's place , in close quarters the short sword is superior .
    If we are hand too hand there is no room to swing nor to thrust .
    Even a large knife is pushing it, but IMO better than a short knife which can't be thrust deep enough to vital organs from any point on the torso except at the chest .
    A bayonet though not a wood processing tool is a significant fighting tool depending on it's length. Some were just pig pokers , not really designed for much more than that.
    the one on the upper right is probably the most practical .Italian I believe . It folds to a short blade for practical use and locks in both positions . Good tool
    The blade is just barely long enough to be used as a short sword ,but in a pinch is formidable against relevant threats. ( depending on the skill of the person wielding it. ) The original wood scales were missing so I replaced the with buck horn.
