Don't ever risk the possibility, however remote, of living with a motherfucking colostomy bag just because you didn't want to choke unconscious or break the limbs of a drunken aggressive ****.

    Oh, and well played Sir. :)
    Agreed. You should have gone `American Me` on him. The idiot tried to home invade a party by himself...with a pocket knife!

    Imagine the poor old woman waiting for the bus after work he may attack!!

    "American Me." Was that the flick with Edward James Olmos were he gets shanked in prison and completely perforated with a shiv like 50 times at the end? I think I saw that like 12 years ago (while drunk).

    Yup. It`s loosely based on how gangs started in prison.

    I used to make chain mail - be a bit careful. If you just using galvanised rings and closing them with pliers - it ain't going to stop a knife pushed with any force. You need to rivet or weld the ends of each ring together to do that. I dread to think how long that would take you........

    I did see one guy make a set of chainmail out of spring washes which would probably be better but VERY heavy.

    Cool story OP

    But to chainmail. I have made nice looking mail from split ring washers


    The square edge gives the mail a good look.
    They are quite hard to open/close with pliers.. but how effective they are aginst a forcefull blow...?

    Probably better than galvanised wire. A very thin blade might do it, most knives have wider blades so it might let the first cm through and that would stop after that. This is pure conjecture on my part as I'm no expert. I only ever saw them used in battle re-enactments where everything was (mainly) blunt.

    What he did was just right. Going ape-**** on a drunk brandishing a knife might seem like the right thing to do but he used just enough force to deal with the threat. The thing is to be able to escalate if need be not go double 0 ninja from the start if it doesn't call for it.

    Yeah, I considered afterwards that maybe I should've employed more force, but unless I wanted to neck crank him with the full nelson, there wasn't really an opportunity to do so safely. In order to hit him, I would've had to release my grips and lose control of his back. In this case, not hurting him was the easiest way for me to not get hurt as well.

    Even if spears spare him.

    Not to split hairs but wouldnt that make it ringmail not chainmail?? By the way how much do those things weigh vs regular chainmail??
