If you connected two shock knives by a length of chain, they could be used for chuckery.
I like the new Avatar.
But seriously, yesterday, I was contemplating the Bo-Chucks (nearing completion) when I realized something about Bo-Three-Sectioned-Staff-Chucks. Now, if it was a Bo-Three-Sectioned-Staff, that would be fine, but by adding the word "Chucks" to the end, I have inadvertently created a third weapon.
Two Bo-Three-Sectioned-Staffs joined by a length of chain!!!
Only my genious could have concieved of chaining together two chain style weapns, for ultimate carnage!
The total length of the weapon consists of six 6 foot Bo staffs joined together, for a grand total of 36 feet!
None may stand before it.
SFGOON, I'm glad you were kidding. As I said, I felt a little dumb asking. . . like a caller to the Phil Hendrie show yelling at some imaginary idiot.
On the other hand, there are people out there who think it's really cool and hardcore to train with live blades. People who teach tactics that are both filthy and felonious. . . jailhouse tactics, if you will. People who live in New Orleans and do Wing Chun.
People who are named Dan Webre.
If I'm being too subtle, somebody let me know.
I bought one of those shock knives to play around with. KageKaze is right its reallly not that bad.It can definitely become uncomfortable really quick though. It will burn the hair off your arm on the high setting if you are touched and the battery is new.
Like Satori I have to say that it seems like this type of equipment leads to the "tippy/tappy" form of knife work. The idea that a slight touch on the arm is equal to a stab to a nasty spot.
Personally I don't see any advantage over an aluminum trainer -- well, other than the prestige of having an expensive training gadget.
Just a heads up, folks. I'm going to be the "guest knifer" at this weekend's GKEH (Gun, Knife, Empty Hand) Dog Brothers seminar. Crafty has the shock knife and my job the whole weekend is simply to do my damnedest to "kill" the seminar attendees. I'll write up an AAR on how the shock knife performed under adrenal stress situations. Hopefully, I won't eat to many elbows over the next 2 days. Wish me luck.
Good luck brother!
Do you have a link to the event? This weekend is short notice, but I've always wanted to see some Dog Brothers beat the hell out of each other with sticks.
Thanks Satori. Just to be clear, this is not the Summer Gathering of the Pack. This is a DBMAA seminar where Crafty will be introducing some new material on empty hand vs. knife. The Gathering will be June 25 at the RAW gym, here's the link. I think this weekend's seminar is closed door unless you're DBMAA, but I could be wrong. If you're interested in the seminar, shoot me a PM and I'll ask Crafty.
