This is barely even the best part of Musashi. One, he wrote a book of philosophy that works for warfare and life. Two, one of those late duels he arrived hungover and with a sword he made out of a boat oar (which was fine since he specialized in the bokken). He charged up the beach, killed his foe, and ran back, timed perfectly for his boat to leave with the tide. Three, his first kill was at 13, when a warrior came into town looking for challengers. Young Musashi offered up a challenge. While his uncle tried to apologize for the boy’s disrespect, Musashi managed to steal the warrior’s sword and kill him (the warrior) with it.

What I would like to know is IF wearing swords was still sociably acceptable in today’s “civilized” society.

1. Which type/style/period etc. would you choose to carry?

2. Why? Wether it be for cultural/heritage reasons or practicality in the style of combat used to wield it or simply because…

Photo 1 Aug 4 notes New addition to the family, I was a bit disappointed with the thickness of the blade and that the handle isn’t a hardwood but oh well. I will at some point in the future be adding a weighted chain to turn it into a Kasari-Gama
