    You know, I really hope Phil Elmore doesn't find out about this. It could be a major safety concern for homeless people and minorities in his area.

    It certainly does seem like homeboy's dream come true. I mean, the man wrote a book about how to use a sword "on the streets."

    I recall on swordforum.com, there was some debate as to whether flexible blades could ever be useful. I'd like to see the test cutting report on these.

    FWIW, I have heard that .22LR has killed more people than any other cartridge. This is probably due to the large number of fucktards with 22's than the killing power of the round.

    No, the .22LR trumps all other rounds in one category, age. I have a .22LR rifle made between 1926, and 1936, and they were common then too. A .22cal round also bounces around like a ping pong ball in your innards, or fragmentates if it is a hollow point. This is due to the high velocity, and low mass of the round. That is your useless information for the day.

    Yes, I know the .45acp is older, but did not gain popularity as soon as the .22 did. It was also more expencive to buy/produce.

    That is pretty badass, I must say.

    But maybe a very small hand guard would be a good addition.

    So I've partially sharpened one, I did about the last 6 inches of the 29incher. Though I chose to sharpen mine on what most people would consider the "back" (more like a seax, as opposed to a katana)



    Pretty moderate stroke on 1/4th" cardboard tube.

    Contrasted with a Kris Cutlery wakizashi that's also very sharp




    Both cuts were about equal in depth, the thinner belt sword had an easier time sliding through the tubing whereas the thicker wakizashi had to wedge the cardboard apart so I noticed more resistance on the latter.

    More tests, maybe even video to come as soon as I finish sharpening it.

    Anna, I would just like to say that you make me feel safer walking around downtown atlanta

    - and jebus help me if I ever meet you
    In summation your argument denotes a lack of intellectual honesty on your part. It is my contention that this matter would best be solved with fisticuffs. I believe I will be victorious in this regard.

    Nope, the .50 BMG and the .30-06 are older, and that's just off the top of my head.

    I've killed FAR more deer with a .22LR than all my other caliber rifles put together. Head shot or upper neck @ the spine. Drops deer instantly so you don't have to chase/track them. Ofcourse, this is out of a 20" barrel so there is alot more velocity. I do think that a .22LR @ less then 5' to the skull of anyone would drop them, regaurdless of barrel length.
