Is there american types of kendo or kenjutsu?
by /u/DayChunk42 on July 11, 2020 at 1:22 am
When I was in Japan in 5th grade, I (along with the rest of the class) was given the opportunity to try out kendo. A few years later (freshman who got held back because principal is like Kim jong un) I was curious if there was an american version of kendo or kenjutsu. Not fencing. submitted by /u/DayChunk42 [link] [comments]

French Naval Swords?
by /u/Cruiser_242 on July 10, 2020 at 9:20 pm
So I’m working on a videogame based on the novels of Jules Verne, and one of the playable characters is going to be a French navy officer. The game takes place at the Turn of the 20th Century, and I haven’t been able to find any information on what pattern of sword French navy officers would have carried at the time. I was wondering if someone here could point me in the right direction, or is this more of an r/history question? submitted by /u/Cruiser_242 [link] [comments]
Legality of swords in the UK?
by /u/Farmerofwooooshes on July 10, 2020 at 8:57 pm
Hi everyone, I have been wanting to purchase a samurai sword for display and was wondering whether or not they are legal to own in the UK? I read a post here from a year ago but many comments said to ask again in a few months as there was going to be a change in the law, thanks! submitted by /u/Farmerofwooooshes [link] [comments]
Flexibility of blades
by /u/NicTheCartographer on July 10, 2020 at 6:43 pm
So… I’m currently working on a fantasy novel, and I was thinking of the protagonist’s sword. Now, stone swords are basically impossible to make, meaning like a knapped blade, due it’s incredible fragility but, given a fantasy setting, in which we have a mineral, a stone, let’s say similar to obsidian, so similar to glass in it’s molecular structure, but nearly unbreakable (Artificially removing what makes an obsidian blade so unreliable: it’s brittleness) what kind of sword should be more indicate for this? I was thinking about a montante or a Scottish two handed sword used like a montante: wide swiping motions used to hold and protect a point against multiple opponents, but I’m having my doubts about that. So that’s why I’m asking for help; would a sword like this, a two handed-wielder sized sword, receive any benefit by a nearly inexistent flexibility? And even if, would that quirk be more suitable for another kind? I thank anyone in advance! submitted by /u/NicTheCartographer [link] [comments]

I think this is a fake sword? Grandmother claims it was used in battle of Waterloo, I think it’s an 1802 French Briquet but I could use a hand because the markings are different (there are none besides the star)

I got my first sword, it’s a ronin katana euro #2. absolutely love it, though the inset part of the pommel is a bit rough it’s an easy fix with some steel wool if I even cared to bother.
