    Yup. Sarissa length.

    ...and several dozen buddies to work out with.

    I have a custom fencing sabre (not Olympic sport fencing, similar style, live blade) by Tinker Pearce. Only thing it's cut is my wedding cake five years ago.

    A Canemasters Cane and an Unbreakable Umbrella are floating around somewhere. A kukri and a machete in with the garden tools.

    I have several tactical style folders, that in the hands of someone who knew what they were doing, ( I don't) would be lethal weapons. I have a cane that I feel comfortable having for an improv. weapon, assorted flashlights that I carried on the job, and a Convoy style blackjack that I learned how to use very effectively years ago. Yet at 60 something with a dislocated shoulder that was never properly treated and a BAD left knee I mainly depend on a handgun.

    My wife.. Does that count?

    I've a ouple of hatchets and a boomerang that I sort of know how to use. Years ago I was shown how to kill or at minimum disable someone with a folded newspaper. At the time it was the NY times. Appropriate.

    Guess I forgot the gurka knife...

    You must have a superb imagination. I can think of two ways. One of them requires a willing victim.

    You must have had no combat training in 1962.

    I could make a lethal weapon out a green army sock then.
    And they didn't have to tell me how to do it several different ways.

    1962 must have been quite a year, but I'll have to take your word for it. Guess they don't trust us as much as they did back then, because they've stopped sharing MacGyver's combat secrets with the troops. Maybe we're supposed to show some initiative and watch the reruns without being asked.

    Whatever you think Bobson, is fine with me!

    I had a senior NCO bayonet & hand to hand combat instructor in AIT that had survived two human wave attacks in Korea.
    He looked like he went three rounds in the Texas chain-saw massacre and lost.
    But he survived!

    He taught us things I doubt anyone can teach in the modern army about improvised weapons in hand-to-hand combat.

    And if you didn't pay attention, he would knock you out of your combat boots with his fatigue cap full of empty brass or pocket change.

    A big bandana would have served him as well or better.
    And you better hope he didn't get it looped around your arm or neck!

    Cause if he so decided, you would be dead before you knew what happened.

    Pretty much whatever is at hand. Then again, the hands as well. One is never unarmed as long as one has a brain and the ability to use it.

    You know, just the standard stuff. Mace, flail, nunchuks, maul, throwing stars, etc.

    In reality, only things I have are a few Bayonets I got from overseas.

    I did see a guy use a large chain as a weapon in a fight outside a bar, and he basically KO'd three wannabe "G's" before the police got there.

    Here is something you don't see everyday.

    A Curt Koehler RazorSword, formerly part of the John Shirley collection.

    Hey, that sure is a funny lookin' belt.

    So not only does this work, it works perfectly. Despite looking like something that you would find in a carnival booth, the RazorSword is completely legit as a weapon. It may be the most cutting power that it is possible to conceal in the absence of Duncan MacLeod's overcoat.

    When JShirley tested it a few years ago I believe he was getting near 70% of the performance of a katana when cutting into hard media.

    I am sure Anthony De Longis would disagree with me, too, but if you watch those guys closely, a good portion of the techniques they utilize are arm wraps with the thong and strikes with the handle at close distances. De Longis is really impressive to watch with a whip but as a regular guy who is just a decent whip user (not a master martial artist) I believe I would be better served with a frying pan/rock/brick/kitchen knife/book thrown as hard has possible for the same distance while I look for something else to use.

    YMMV
    BTW what kind of whip do you have?

    Hey Sam,
    That is something you don't see everyday! How fast does something like that deploy? That much fun has to be illegal... :)

    If you have both hands free you could deploy and cut in less than a second with practice.

    Not in KY :D

    I can see me getting in a lot of trouble wearing a "sword belt." Plus I don't think it would fit too well with my current gun belt, and I don't want to get another one as I am just now getting this one broke in good.

    You mean that there is something that can't be used as a weapon?
