    Feel free. Inquartatta left and right slide in real nice as "13" and "14"

    With the messer and cut from Inquartatta would probably make sense. Slip a down cut (Cut #7 on a traditional saber target) on right inquartatta and counter-cut with a #1 or #7.

    Groovy. I like how it's easy to store when not in use. It's just another long-pole. :)


    Thanks, Kirk, from one creepy bald guy to the next.
    Us creepy bald guys gotta stick together.

    Well I am a couple weeks from being cleared to rough house and train again.

    I am seriously looking forward to checking you guys out.
    I don't mean to sound bitter, cold, or cruel, but I am, so that's how it comes out.

    #3 is awkward unless posit that you have already pre-positioned edge out, point down for some reason, such as if you've just made a traditional Broadsword thrust (knuckles up) or for some other reason. It comes from Broadsword (among others). In the Highland Broadsword system 3 and 4 are "Inside Half-Hanger" guard and "Outside Half-Hanger" guard respectively.

    Both movements 4 and 11 could represent the "Outside Half-Hanger" using the edge or could also be interpreted as a Back-cut parry using a abanico-like movement. Once you are in a point down position from 11, it makes perfect sense to stay that for the parry/intercept of movement 12.

    As far as the blade goes, the difference between movements 3 & 4 and movements 11 & 12 is the order is reversed.
