I did go to the Suwannee Ren Fair. I bought a dagger whose decoration appears to me to be inspired by art from the subcontinent. I think it is rather kewl.
No, I will not cut myself. I am not that clumsy around sharp object.
I do want a couple a katana/wakisashi pair, a claymore, and a great sword. For display purposes. I’d only beat up my friends with kendo swords. Or maybe with the foam deals that the Amtgarde people use?
