Before you ask, no I'm not going to train cutlass. No, I'm not going to LARP as a pirate (except to scare people at stupid parties by flaunting our weapon laws maybe :blob5: ).

However....

This "Captain Fool" character has got me thinking two things:

1) How would one train to use a cutlass?It's just a bloody big cleaver that's wieldy. Pirates of the relevant era didn't use body armour as far as I know.
2) "Captain Fool" is not as cool as Captain Birdseye.

How do you train a cutlass? Isn't it a lifeless peice of metal?

****. Grammar again. How do you train to USE a cutlass?!

(There's a computer game about a magic cutlass. It sucks apart from a journalist's spin on it)

Weapons operate on general principles. Don't get caught up in specifics. It's a long bladed weapon. What techniques work well with long bladed weapons? What parts of the body are easily damaged by a long bladed weapon? Etc.

Well I guess I could just do the old "hack at trees" trick. People do.

okay...you want to train to use a cutless as a weapon, right? if not, ignore the following:
Get the 1968 shape, a two door model, with the 455cu in vee 8, and drive over people with it.

Only misogynists cut lasses.

but these days, most cuts on lasses are self administered.

personally, i'd never train a cutter.

Indeed.

Razamataz thanks you for training the one depicted in his present avatar.

No, no. Just accept his thanks. No need to go into pedagogical detail.

Yep. The info is already out there. Raz's Earth-mother avatar (heretofore known as Moo-Raz) was the favourite destination for participants in the most recent Mystic felchQuest. Just google it. Apparently, her inability to reach far enough behind for hygienic purposes gave felchQuesters some crisp-and-spicy tip-o'-the-tongue rewards for their efforts--those who weren't scared off by face-to-face encounters with various tapeworms, nematodes, hagfish and lampreys.

"Right now" is all there is.

Ever.
