Bladed / Exotic Weapons Thread

Recommended Posts

I simply cannot stay away from this, I have three katana, two of which are very sharp, one of which is just for display and only cost me 5 dollars. And I have a very sharp combat knife.

Not to mention my 12 gauge shotgun that within arms reach all the time. But that is saved for a different thread.

 

Nice collection there. Do you study any traditional martial arts to use the Katana's or do you just have them?

I just recently started my collection about a year and a half ago, when I was bed ridden after my car crash I had a lot of time on my hands. Some of you may not know this, but I was actually quite athletic and did not spend to much time on my arse before my crash. But afterwards I could not do much of anything, I just sat around and browsed the internet, which I had not been familiar with prior to. I got compensated for pain and suffering, and used some of that money to start a katana collection. I want to study the traditional martial arts of things like kendo, but I have yet to do so.

Kendo would get you back on your feet for sure! I have friends who study Kenjitsu, which is the better art for learning Katanas.

I hired a personal trainer, and I am now about the same I was before the crash, except my stamina is almost nonexistent. I kinda fell into the bad habit of the interwebs and video games, and I cannot seem to stop. I still do active activities though, hunting mostly, but I do frisby golf also.

Well I just need to find a dojo around where I live, and I do not know if there is one for sure, I know of a taijitsu dojo, but not of a kenjitsu dojo.

Yeah, Kenjitsu is hard to find. I live in San Antonio. There is like 1 Kenjitsu school in the entire city. It is too traditional for most people.

 

For those wondering, we are on Martial Arts designed to teach weapons like the Katana. :ph34r:

Talk about nonfunctional overkill that is totally awesome!!!

Yep, turn yourself into a weapon! Tae Kwon Do is a good start, so is Wu Shu, and Kenpo.

That weapon looks completely nonsensical and impractical. You'd probably stab yourself with it.

But damn that looks cool.

Who cares if it works as a legitimate weapon or not.

 

Sometimes, looking cool is all that matters bro.

Yeah it would probably take a lot of practice with a rubber one to keep from killing everyone in sight and yourself but I think it could be done and even after all that practice you would have to just stab who you want then take it off or something. And yeah it looks damn cool.

I could learn to use it fairly well rather quickly because of my martial arts training. As long as my forearm is much bigger than hers (which it is) that allows for better control. It is built as I stabbing weapon, but cane be used to slash fairly easily. Still, their are many much better weapons out there.

The problem is it is probably insanely heavy and hard to swing but I think with the right training it can be used. Also does anyone know what it's called?

Late to the party here. XD

From left to right: Rapier, short sword, Unknown (it's not a katana, don't say it. XD), A small pistol style dagger, A broken axe. (we made the handle into a blunt weapon and use the top as a throwing weapon. I don't use the top part, because when my friend broke it, it flew and cut my side open. I'm paranoid of it. XD) and now the big boy:

Claymore. I don't know much about it other than my uncle picked it up at a flea market.

That pistol dagger is rather impressive. Could you take a larger picture of it maybe?

 

That Rapier is pretty cool looking as well.

Smokey mountain knife works for $20. We live near the knife works. XD I love it. They have a site you could buy it from if they still sell it. But I mostly would buy practical tools from there. (as in the huge machete we got for clearing off my friend's farm. XD haha)

I have so many cool looking knives around here but I don't have my camera charged at the moment.

 

Since I already had the pic here's the knife I'm carrying now before I opened it.

Also I found some pics on here of the cheap katana I got as a gift.

I love blades! Bladed weapons are the best! They're so cool. <3 If I ever became rich, besides having a library and an arcade in my mansion, I would want a room full of awesome and exotic blades and other similar weapons. I don't have anything myself now, though. -sigh-

 

But dude, you have the Master Sword?! Jealousy, jealousy everywhere. I only have a wooden one I painted myself when I was like 11.

Those are called katars (or suwaiya). They're from India. They are used in at least one video game series, though: Soul Calibur. Voldo uses twin katars.

I took some time editing it.

Man, that blade is awesome. The name of it is Frostmourne. :DDD I payed about 75€ to get it, plus sending taxes.
