What if you could open carry a sword (or big knife or the like)? Would you do it? Which one would you carry? Also I have heard that people can open carry firearms in Arizona? Does that law apply to edged weapons, etc.?

Without a doubt, M1911A1 on the right and pirate's cutlass on the left, all on a sam browne belt. The the freaking socialists would have a heart attack if this came true in my country.

I'd have to take the two Bagwell Hells Belles fighting Bowies I own.

These are premier fighting bowies by one of the premier figthing bowie makers in the world, if not the authority on authentic bowies used during the heydays in the deep south between 1830's and the 1870's.

I don't feel these would do me any good at all without the training that has gone along with them though [ long blades ].

uh, Tamara you have a gladius in that picture - just wondering if you (or anyone else) has actually tried carrying/using one in the field. I've always thought a slightly less showy version might make a good general purpose field knife, and they are, after all, the proverbial 'two edged sword' of the New Testament, as well for those of us of a Christian bent.

Apparently, there still exists archaic but still valid regulations from the University of Oxford/Cambridge that states that candidates showing up for exams MUST wear a sword. Apparently, it dates to the 1600s/1700s where college students stood a good chance of being mugged by bandits to and from the exam hall.

What would the general reaction from the public be if US Federal law stiputated that ALL able bodies male citizens HAD to carry a sharp metal sword? Design, length and mode of carry totally up to individual?
