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.
Well looks like I might need an X-Ray on my elbow, possibly torn or fractured something.
1-2-punch said: Well done. Too much good stuff. I look forward to using your quotes, images, and resources as a source for my own inspiration. Thank you, keep it up!
^_^ I try, I guess that’s all we can do in the end; is keep trying.
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
Ugh, can we please end this straight sword stereotype
