    Seriously ...

    Becouse I think we should be trying to discount other peoples choices by finding good video of the weapon being used . Becouse I am pretty sure you can find footage of most of the items listed being used in some applicable manner ... but the 3ss ... I don't know if there is any .
    About as close as you're likely to find.

    Which scene ? I am sure you are talking about Flail to the head scene when he pretends to be unarmed .

    Unless you're talking about when he was on horse back and had the ball and chain ... that was funny ... I can't think of anything more fucked up than Mel Gibson riding a horse into my bedroom to brain me with a eight pound iron ball on a chain ....

    But neither scene was nunchakus or a 3SS or a standard grain thrasher .

    Fans that aren't made of steel or iron are basicly useless as weapons . Unless your using some damn fine wood .

    You could easily pack a fist with a good heavy fan and use it as a kubaton or a short stick to strike and subdue someone . Not so usefull these days with air conditioning so common ... a man carrying around a fan that could be usefull as a weapon would draw attention in most countries .

    But you can't rule out a weapon simply becouse modern man has fucked up its design . You can't say katanas suck becouse most katanas are wall hanging peices of **** .

    I don't mean to sound bitter, cold, or cruel, but I am, so that's how it comes out.

    So why are Caltrops on the list? They mere mostly used against horses and they were pretty stinking effective. A couple of dozen sacttered on a road and you've got a whole lot of lame horses.

    Yeap, and the only place the 3ss is likely to come in handy.

    Unless you have a really small one to make a hanger out of a la the trenchcoat Nazi in "Raider of the Lost Ark"

    They work better against the wallets of adolescent males with Ninjer delusions.

    I voted tactical torch. Because you can't even hit someone with it. Just for fun, I went in to a dark room and turned on my very-high candlepower flashlight. Nothing. Sure, it's bright, but not that bright. Science wins again.

    And everything else, except maybe the batleth, is plausible as a weapon. In the hands of someone skilled, it might be effective.

    I voted Batleth.

    Because...Well, Just stop being a Star Trek nerd for five damn seconds. Just Stop.
