Tom: Ah hah... I do love hearing where Gus gets his inspiration for his swords. Very cool. ;-)
CF: Don't I know it. Worse then the crap quality... the video camera only works with my wife's laptop, not my PC, so to load pics I use my PC, and to load vid I need my laptop, which is slower then molasses dripping down Velcro in the winter.

great review Sean, thanks. this was never my favorite type of sword, it kind of reminds me of an overgrown Bowie knife but it sure does look powerful and sounds like a sweet ringer. I am always thrown off when a big strong guy is cutting with swords because I never really know if it's nimble or they just make it look nimble, lol but the quick recovery and redirection you display in your vid are impressive.

Despite my size and strength, when it comes to single handed swords I tend to prefer shorter, lighter, faster weapons. The bulk of my weapons training is with knife, escrima, and rapier/dagger... so I'm not accustomed to longer, heavier swords. With two handed swords I like length and a bit of weight... but single handed swords I like em short and fast... so if I say its a quick and nimble sword, it likely is so for someone smaller as well... just because my taste runs that way.

ouroboros: I say we take off and nuke the whole site from orbit--it's the only way to be sure

RufusScorpius: Satellite GPS plot of Christain's property, enter into the Automatic Geometry Guidance and resurface and re-slope his entire property. Then spray it with that green seed mix from a high pressure hose. Should take 20 minutes for the whole job.

RufusScorpius: Oh man, you let slip my gimmick. And I was going to do it by remote piloting using GPS data mapping

treeslicer: Rufus, why do I get this picture of you, in armor, driving some piece of air-conditioned heavy equipment you borrowed from the local railroad, scraping Christain's lawn down to bare dirt, then scattering gravel ballast all over it?

RufusScorpius: I made you a promise I would cut your grass in armor and I fully intend to keep it. I just can't promise a time. But it's gonna happen.
Feb 20, 2020 11:28:49 GMT
christain: I think Spring is gonna come early this year, so there'll be plenty of time for mower-jousting.

christain: Come and help me MOW my grass in your Roman gear!-------
Feb 20, 2020 8:38:25 GMT
RufusScorpius: Primarily for MOW. Operator training, mechanics, track structure and geometry, hydraulics, electric, PLC, and so forth.
