So I have ended up on many catalog mailing lists including my favorite entertaining catalog--BudK. I have ordered some fun stuff from them in the past (their pistol crossbows are a lot of fun). As a young man, I also bought some stuff I wouldn't dream of buying now, but I still get a good laugh from a lot of their stuff. I thought I would share in good fun.
Hey it's got some interesting stuff in it, but the marketing is the really entertaining part: "When you're going out on a covert mission and need to be armed to the teeth, this box has everything you need."
I just imagine John Wick browsing the BudK catalog and looking at this and saying, "hmmmm, that could come in handy."
The description clarifies "carbon steel" by adding the replica "features stainless steel construction."
It also explains "ancient swords often weighed in at more than 20 lbs in order to effectively penetrate heavy combat armor." Hopefully the "blood grooves" give it a decent POB. But that's a lot of metal for $57.
Well, I was born in '89 so I didnt get to see the cool Hollywood ninja stuff in all its glory. I am a fan of "Beveraly Hills Ninja" though. The first blade I remember really liking was a butterfly knife that had brass knuckles for a grip and a machete with a sharp little gut hook looking thing. They were not very useful but cool to me at the time.
As bad as I hate to say it, If I had an extra $200 just to piss away---I think I would get the Battle Box. -------
Nah--------but when I was a teenager-------Ohhh, hell yeah. Back then, I thought BudK was THE place to get cool gear. I still have the HUGE two-handed Scimitar sword...which is actually pretty solid for a stainless wall-hanger.
christain: Plan on blacking-out the eyes, nose, and mouth---in the 'Y'-shaped visor slit. Halloween is not far off, and I gotta be on my A-game!

christain: I just ordered an Epic Armoury 'Epic-Dark' barbute helm from KoA. My ol' lady is gonna thrash me, but I don't care.

nternal805: Hello Mike, what exactly are you asking?

mikefr1: My first time using and I sent information minutes ago but I’m not sure it went anywhere? Is this the place to ask my questions!

christain: Waiting on a custom must be extra-hard....I get antsy waiting on a machete or tomahawk from Amazon, and they only take a couple of days!

nerdthenord: Getting closer and closer to my custom sword... Just 2-4 more months!

christain: Day 2 of my 'vacation'. I did have a good night of painless sleep though. Beer, with an intermittent shot of good bourbon, and a muscle-relaxer chaser will do it every time. I feel pretty good today....for now. Wifey may change all that.

redscorpion: Hey, nord! I haven't been much active either. Lots of business with work and home. Life often gets in the way of having fun.
Oct 13, 2019 20:53:25 GMT
nerdthenord: Howdy folks. Haven't been on much the last week or so. Sorry about your knee Scorp.

christain: I'm already at the antsy stage...tomorrow will be fidgeting...then hair-pulling...then going out back and killing some water bottles. That usually helps. The running out of money is my problem too. If I were mega-rich...look out!
Oct 12, 2019 19:51:51 GMT
redscorpion: 10 days! I get antsy after 2. Not that I run out of things to do, I just run out of the money to do them.
Oct 12, 2019 19:00:50 GMT
christain: I can do that by MYSELF---EASILY.
Oct 12, 2019 15:15:20 GMT
christain: Andi: Of that, I can be certain---and it usually involves spending money.
Oct 12, 2019 15:14:27 GMT
christain: The weather is WONDERFUL--cool and Fall-like--FINALLY. Great for outdoor chores, but nothing really needs done outside. The heat from summer took care of my lawn for me, and raking leaves is just pissin' in the wind right now.

AndiTheBarvarian: After day 1 wife finds something to do!
Oct 12, 2019 15:12:56 GMT
christain: I've got 10 days of paid vacation, and I honestly don't know what to do with myself...and today is just day 1. I've got a ton of projects to work on, but the motivation escapes me. Maybe today I'll just chill and cook something good.

redscorpion: My only option is to don my best Kung-fu homeless/drunken/master clothing and stand around the dojo with a stick and slap the students when they do wrong. Other than that, I'm on the sidelines.

redscorpion: It's just a thing to get through. It annoys me because my German co-worker goes back in 2 months and we really haven't done any HEMA style sparring yet. I won't be up and running until he's back in Germany. Dam the timing.
